Girl guides help out at cent sale
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.
