As part of the Big Brownie Birthday, celebrating the organisation turning 100 years old, the 1st Ferryden Brownies are doing a charity drive.
For their part in the centenary, the Ferryden youngsters have been doing various challenges which take the group throughout the years.
The year the Brownies are currently celebrating is 1932. They donated flowers and eggs to hospitals and families and held parties for parents, friends and other people.
Now, Brownies all over the world still do a good turn everyday and lend a hand.
As a unit, the Ferryden Brownies are doing one big good turn for a great cause whilst also raising awareness of how severe asthma can be.
The Brownies are currently doing a charity drive asking for craft materials such as pens, pencils, crayons, child-safe craft glue, paint, felt, colouring paper and drawing pads which they plan to donate to Ward 29 at Ninewells Hospital for the play centre there.
The Ferryden Brownies chose this cause as a member of the pack has a sister, who is also friends with the unit members, who suffers from ‘brittle asthma’ and can be in and out of hospital for varying spells.
It is a cause close to all of their hearts.
If anyone has any crafty items they would like to donate then Ferryden Brownies would be very grateful.
Those wishing to donate can telephone Sam on 01674 676458 to organise.
Girls across the country have been marking the special birthday of the Brownies by taking part in various activities such as ‘World Centres’, ‘Star Quest’ and a special Challenge Badge.
