St Mary’s-based Brownies have received a boost to their fundraising efforts with a £500 grant from the Scilly Lottery.

Group leader Fiona Robson says they’re raising money to attend the Brownie Centenary event at Foxlease in Hampshire this August.

The grant will be used to pay for activities on site, such as abseiling and archery, and a day out at the Owl and Otter Sanctuary.

She says they’re hoping to do some basic orienteering with the group too.

Fiona says the girls have been asked write a diary each day and will have a presentation evening in September for everyone who helped them financially.
