Girlguiding’s aid for disaster fund

A BIG thank you to everyone who supported Girlguiding Northumberland’s coffee morning held on July 16 in its county headquarters.

We couldn’t have chosen a worse day weather wise, and so the strawberry cream scones and coffee on sale were very welcome.

Friends were generous and bought lots of raffle and tombola tickets, resulting in a total of £325 being raised towards the Japanese Disaster Fund.

Girlguiding in Northumberland has had a long association with Guiding in Japan.

Last year a group of Japanese Girl Scouts attended Northumberland’s Centenary Camp and so we were delighted to be able to support our friends following the natural disasters that have recently hit their homeland.

Many thanks.
