1st Randwick Brownies were invited to attend a special Waitrose Community Matters evening a few days ago to receive a cheque for £292 from the collection of green tokens during May 2015.
Brown Owl Julie Burns and Fluffy Owl Maygan Jones, a Young Leader with the group, took five Brownies along to the event at Waitrose in Stroud after being nominated anonymously for the Community Matters Award in May. Waitrose donate £1000 to be split between three charities each month, and the Brownies were very fortunate and came second.
The girls and leaders arrived at the Waitrose Community Matters evening to be greeted by juice in champagne glasses and lots of tasty finger foods! Each charity had a chance to give a talk about their work, receive their cheque and have photographs taken (which might appear in the Waitrose magazine too!).
The group are hoping to spend the money on a special trip and the Brownies are currently coming up with lots of ideas..!
