New volunteers in Berkshire

You may remember that back in November, Girlguiding UK launched its new campaign aimed at recruiting adult volunteers (you can see the video here).

Since it started, Berkshire has had 11 new volunteers sign up! We're so pleased that new members have joined us recently - welcome, and thank you!

Priestwood Brownies raise money for hospice

1st Priestwood Brownies recently put on their own version of the 12 Days of Christmas in their Christmas show. As well as showing their talents, the girls offered refreshments for donations and sold a book of raffle tickets all in aid of Helen and Douglas Hospice.

After a night of fun and frolics, the unit managed to raise a fantastic £184.00!

Well done to everyone involved.
