Rangers raise funds while Brownies sleep out!

Bridgnorth Rangers held a bag pack at the town’s branch of Sainsbury’s to raise money and awareness of the mental health charity MIND, raising over £280. Ranger Ruth Lea says, “We were very grateful to see the local public being so generous for a charity we all hold close to our hearts.”

Meanwhile, 70 Brownies from local units including Worfield, Highley, Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth joined together for a fun-filled sleepover at Jungleland in Telford. The girls took part in bowling, mini golf, soft play and a disco before settling down for a night in the jungle.

“It was fantastic to see all the children coming together, having so much fun, and to see friendships forming and developing,” says Bridgnorth division commissioner Catherine Coleman.  “We always provide a variety of opportunities for fun, friendships, skills and adventure across our termly programme through a wide variety of activities. Girlguiding Bridgnorth has been very lucky to have been supported as one of the Bridgnorth Mayor’s charities this year and we’re extremely grateful for the further opportunities we can provide for our young members. There are a limited number of places available to join locally; call 07522 495137 to find out more.”
