Sleep­over was a dream

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A group of brown­ies joined thou­sands of oth­ers around the world tak­ing part in The Gi­ant Sleep­over to raise money for UNICEF, the world’s lead­ing chil­dren’s or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Six­teen young­sters from the 2nd By­brook Brown­ies – who meet at the Pheonix Pri­mary School in Ken­ning­ton – joined the global sleep­over on Satur­day, June 22.

They spent the night at Ruckinge Scout & Guide hall and raised money by tak­ing part and com­plet­ing the chal­lenge set by their Brown Owl, Mau­reen Thomas, to com­plete var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing their cook, artist and toy­maker Brownie badges dur­ing the event.

They also took part in an in­door camp fire and played bingo.

All the money raised from the event will help fund UNICEF’s life sav­ing work to make sure that ev­ery child has enough nu­tri­tious food to eat.
