Over 30 Rainbows and Brownies from Dale Street Leamington are celebrating after successfully collecting together their sponsor money from their Crazy Mile for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The girls aged between 5 and 10 raised £770 and were supported by family and friends as they completed the Mile for Macmillan challenge in Victoria Park Leamington. The Rainbows and Brownies are two of over 4,000 Girlguiding Midlands units to join forces with Macmillan as part of a new charity partnership to raise £72,000 for people affected by cancer this year.
Kavi aged 10, a member of the Brownies, said “Everyone had fun choosing how to go a mile in a crazy way. There was cartwheeling, space hopping, skipping, walking with an egg and spoon and girls in pairs walking 3 legged or as wheelbarrow. It was tiring but felt good to raise money for other people.”
