Girls from 1st Chiseldon Rainbows and Brownies enjoyed the village primary school’s sunny summer fete as they raised funds for their unit’s adventures with a tombola stuffed full of prizes.
Preparing for the fete, the Rainbows aged 5 to 7 had spent several months collecting old jars and gathering prizes before deciding amongst themselves how to divide it all up.
Big smiles on their faces, the girls reached the ticket bowl over the eighty jars they had prepared, hoping each pick was a winner for the visitor to their stall which would raise money for new adventures.
Rainbow leader, Jo Ridd said " It’s been wonderful. The girls have really loved working together, collating all the jars and piling the prizes high before giving them all a chance to decide how it was going to be split up".
Giving girls a voice and encouraging self confidence the 1st Chiseldon Rainbows and Brownies are looking for new friends to join, sharing in the fun and adventures they have.
