Girl guides help out at cent sale

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY KIDS -

THE PROSER­PINE Girl Guides have lived up to their giv­ing rep­u­ta­tion, help­ing out at this year’s St Paul’s Angli­can Church cent sale on Satur­day.

The girls helped take tick­ets and run out prizes to the lucky win­ners.

Proser­pine Girl Guides dis­trict leader Ch­eryl Rai­teri said the girls en­joyed lend­ing a hand.

“Ev­ery year, it’s an an­nual event, they look for­ward to help­ing the Angli­can ladies raise money and they’ve been do­ing it for many years now,” she said.

“That’s the big thing on the cal­en­dar when they first start guides, when are we do­ing the cent sale.”

The work the girls do goes to­wards achiev­ing their ser­vice badge, but also teaches them im­por­tant life lessons.

“That’s what guiding is all about, is help­ing peo­ple, and we teach them that,” Mrs Rai­teri said.

The girls are also en­thu­sias- tic par­tic­i­pants in lots of other com­mu­nity events.

“They love march­ing on AN­ZAC Day and many other things like that as well,” Mrs Rai­teri said.

The Proser­pine Girl Guides are cur­rently see­ing a boom in num­bers, but are strug­gling to find lead­ers to sup­port the pro­gram.

“It’s very hard to get lead- ers,” Mrs Rai­teri said.
