The Mata­mata Girl Guides are go­ing back to ba­sics to raise funds for their jam­boree early next year.

Mata­mata Girl Guides are have been fundrais­ing to send 17 girls and two par­ents to the Guide Jam­boree in Christchurch in Jan­uary 2016.

The lo­cal guid­ing group, which caters for girls aged 9 to 121⁄ are hold­ing a stall at this month’s Mata­mata Mar­ket.

The mar­ket, at Mata­mata Pri­mary on July 11, will see the girls selling pump­kin and veg­etable soup, eco soaps, quilt raf­fle tick­ets and home bak­ing.

The girls are ask­ing for do­na­tions of veg­eta­bles from friends/fam­ily and on both of the Face­book buy- and- sell pages.

The young women are also cur­rently run­ning a quilt raf­fle which again is be­ing ad­ver­tised on the Face­book buy and sell pages.

The quilts are also be­ing dis­played in West­pac and tick­ets, which are $5, can be bought there.

The raf­fle closes on Au­gust 7, with the win­ner drawn on Au­gust 12.
