Brownie guider Brenda Ferguson was pleased with her girls’ Christmas spirit, as they took on a project to help others.
The girls worked on decorating bags for Newark Neighbours, which were then filled up with donations to families at Christmas time.
The girls usually meet outside, where it is safer during the pandemic, although a few of their meetings have been online, due to bad weather, says Ferguson.
“We packed under the pavilion of the Virgil sports park in our hats, gloves, and snowsuits to create these bags,” she says.
“The girls used old cards, stickers and their amazing imaginations to create beautiful bags for the families to enjoy.”
They also took up a collection of donations for Newark Neighbours.
“With the 20 girls, we were able to donate five boxes of food and a bag of toys. We discussed the importance of giving back and how lucky we are to have the opportunity to help Newark Neighbours,” she says.
“These girls are vibrant and lovely and always happy and eager to help.”
