Seaton Guides have gratefully received a cheque for £320 from Seaton Lions Club, enabling them to buy new tents.
The Guides wrote to the Lions asking for help to purchase new equipment, having found their current tents leaked very badly on their last two camps.
They have also been busy with a number of fundraising activities in the last 12 months and with this generous donation are now looking forward to purchasing one big tent and two smaller ones for patrol groups.
On the same day, March 18th, five of the Guides were also presented with their Baden Powell Award, the highest award they can achieve as Guides.
This involves a number of challenges designed to increase awareness of healthy lifestyles, increase self confidence, gain new experiences, and promote active citizenship.
Guide guider Jane Johns said: “Although it involved over 12 months of hard work to achieve this award, all of the girls really enjoyed the experiences and opportunities they gained, especially on the residential weekend, where they met up with Guides from around Devon.”
Seaton Guides is open to all girls aged 10-15 in the Axe Valley area and new members, both girls and adults are always welcome.
They meet every Tuesday evening and enjoy a range of activities along with regular residential and camping experiences. To find out more email seatonguides@hotmail.co.uk
