Brown­ies in £410 wind­fall

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

A BROWNIE group is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing hun­dreds of pounds from a su­per­mar­ket.

The 1st Poyn­ton Brown­ies (St Ge­orge’s) unit were handed £410 from Waitrose in Poyn­ton through its Com­mu­nity Mat­ters Green To­ken scheme.

The lead­ers plan to use the cash to fund some of the many ac­tiv­i­ties the girls do.

They will also fund some of the cel­e­bra­tions as the unit marks its 90th birth­day next year.

Shirley Ross, guider of 1st Poyn­ton Brown­ies, said: “The money we have re­ceived from Waitrose is out­stand­ing and we, as a unit, are re­ally pleased to re­ceive such a sum of money.

“We are a very ac­tive unit and the money will cer­tainly help us con­tinue to pro­vide a var­ied pro­gramme for all the Brown­ies to en­joy.

“Next year the Brownie unit will be cel­e­brat­ing the 90th birth­day of the unit, and we shall use some of the money to en­joy this achieve­ment.”

The girls, who are aged seven to 10 years, meet ev­ery Thurs­day at St Ge­orge’s Church Hall from 6.15pm to 7.45pm.
