Badge helps to raise funds for charity
Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, and their leaders in Kent East are supporting this week’s National Eye Heath week by launching a new challenge badge with Kent Association for the Blind (KAB).
Girlguiding Kent East is working with KAB, the local charity supporting visually impaired people and those with dual sensory loss, to raise awareness of disability among its units in the County.
They have created the KAB Challenge in a Box, which is full of tasks and equipment which will be passed from unit to unit around the county.
All profits raised from the sale of the badge will be donated to KAB.
Challenges include wearing a blindfold or simi-specs which are used to mimic visual conditions to carry out tasks from making a sandwich to counting money and reading braille.
Jooles George, County Guide advisor said: “The Challenge in a Box is the latest badge we have designed to ensure our programme adapts to the changing lives of girls today.”
