Girls from south east Northumberland have been raising funds during their annual ‘Snowman Drive’.

The girls, aged five to ten from 1st Woodhorn Rainbows and 7th Ashington Brownies, were raising funds to support their programme of activities and have been working to arrange the Snowman Drive, where participants have to complete a snowman.

They even created a special tactile version of the game to enable one of the Brownies, who is blind, to take part.

Parents and friends were invited to join the fun.

A total of £488.68 was raised including £277.50 from the Co-op, which was shared between the two groups.

Brownie leader Pauline Mitchley said: “We are delighted with the support of the staff and customers at the Co-op, their generosity will help us provide more opportunities for local girls to expand their horizons.”

Staff at the Co-op on Milburn Road held a raffle for a chocolate hamper and donated cookies for Brownies and Rainbows to sell on the night.
