Skills for life

Funding level: Up to £1,000

Description

Girlguiding Loddon Chineham District are fundraising to buy some new camping equipment. Our old tents are leaking and are no longer useable if it rains (which it usually does on Guide Camp). We've managed to raise enough to buy ourselves three new tents this year, but we still need to buy three more sleeping tents to allow more girls the opportunity to experience camping with us, and a new cooking tent to keep our QM happy (and dry!!) and the girls well fed.

Camping is an important part of being a Guide. It gives girls the opportunity to experience independence, teamwork, and lots of new skills which we can't cover in our weekly meetings. We are also planning to take our Brownies camping next year, to give them the chance to earn their camper badges!!

Girlguiding Loddon Chineham District

Girlguiding gives girls so many fantastic opportunities both at a local level, nationally and even internationally. As a volunteer I see the girls grow & develop their confidence, just as I did as a Brownie & Guide many years ago.
