Girls from Rainbows and Brownies took part in a cheeky monkey’s marathon challenge in aid of national children’s charity, Children with Cancer UK.
The challenge was based on the number 26, the same amount of miles in a marathon and the children from 4th March group were sponsored to participate.
The girls chose to hold a sponsored camp fire singing session with 26 songs which included favourites like Campfires Burning, Kookaburra and Alice the Camel. This was followed by toasting marshmallows.
Susan Southwell, Brownie leader, said: “We wanted to raise funds for Children with Cancer UK as part of the Big Brownie Birthday challenge badge. We have raised over £330 for the charity”.
Ben Twyman, Head of Events at Children with Cancer UK, said: “A huge thank you to 4th March Rainbows and Brownies for their hard work, commitment and dedication.
