“DOING something for someone else,” is something which which is part of the guides' creed, and the 1st Freethorpe Guide group recently showed they are a shining example.

“DOING something for someone else,” is something which which is part of the guides' creed, and the 1st Freethorpe Guide group recently showed they are a shining example.

The youngsters recently handed over a cheque to Freethorpe First Responders for £200, approximately half the money raised through a “bag pack,” with the rest going to boost guide funds.

Leader Dawn George said: “The bag pack is voluntary and forms part of the girls work towards their Year Challenge Badge, which is “take part in a community activity that involves doing something for someone else.”

She added: “We decided as a guide group that we wanted to donate to the Responders as they carry out valuable work in the local community and we want to support them with this.”

Pictured are some of the guides handing over the cheque.
