GIRLS and volunteers from the First Catshill Brownies are celebrating after being given six new tents and a winter pack holiday.
Worcestershire County Councillor Sheila Blagg paid for the equipment and break with her divisional funding.
It came about after the Brownies asked Coun Helen Jones about potential funding and she put them in touch with Coun Blagg.
There are currently 36 girls in the pack and others on a waiting list.
The group has never had camping equipment so the girls were, up until now, unable to go out into the great outdoors under canvas and had to stay in lodges instead.
Catshill Brownies unit leader Lorna Meer said the girls had already had fun practising putting up the new tents and were now looking forward to celebrating 100 years of Brownies by taking part in a Big Brownies
Birthday Camp this summer.
“We are very grateful to Coun Blagg for the donation from her community fund which has allowed us to buy the tents.”
Coun Blagg said: “I am pleased to see this benefit to Catshill Brownies.”
