Meghan Cargill, a nine-year-old Brownie from Montrose, has been chosen by Emma Bunton to have her dream sleep-over - at Ibrox Stadium.
Meghan entered a UNICEF UK competition to win a place at a gigantic sleepover on Saturday, at various venues throughout the UK, to raise money for UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation.
Other venues include sea sanctuaries, spooky castles and forests, by sending in stories and drawings of their dream sleepover.
Former Spice Girl and UNICEF UK supporter Emma Bunton joined the judging panel to pick the six lucky winners.
Meghan described her dream sleepover as just being with her friends all the time, “chatting and singing songs with friends, sleeping in her sleeping bag and being beside all my friends. We would go for a walk at night time and use a torch to find different things in the dark. One of the best bits is waking up in the morning and still having your friends there.”
Meghan continued: “I am really excited, I can’t wait to get there. I think we’ll sing songs on the bus.”
Meghan’s mum, Melanie, said: “This is Meghan’s first Brownie sleepover so she’s really excited. It’s wonderful that she wrote such a lovely story. Recently she’s realised she can write and what she writes makes sense. I’m always finding bits of paper in her room with writing on it.”
David Bull, UNICEF UK executive director says; “The Giant Sleepover is a fantastic way for children to have some fun and raise money for UNICEF UK to help vulnerable children around the world. With this competition we wanted to give children a chance to make their sleepover that little bit more special. Meghan’s entry was really fantastic and I’m so pleased they’ll be snuggling down at the Rangers stadium.”
