Trust Grant Funds Barton Brownies Identity
Barton’s latest thriving Brownie unit is celebrating a £300
grant from the Barton & Dunstall Key Trust providing
personalised neckers and a Unit flag to identify the 3rd. Barton
Brownies at Guiding, public & community events.
Part of Girl Guiding, Brownies is for girls aged seven to
ten. The 3rd. Barton Brownies, formed in October 2012, started
with an enthusiastic, dedicated leader with no other resources,
now has nineteen members and meets at St James' Church Hall in
Barton under Needwood every Wednesday.
"Having built up our Unit it was important to have our
very own Flag and neckers with our Unit colours for girls to
wear so they can be recognised and identified when out and about
at Guiding and public events" said Kerrie Spooner, leader.
"Now, thanks to a £300 grant from the Barton & Dunstall
Key Trust we'll be wearing our Unit colours with pride,
particularly at our Thinking Day event in Nottingham on 21st
February when our Unit joins 4,000 girls involved in
Girlguiding" she added.
“We’re delighted to support 3rd.Barton Brownies and will
be pleased to hear from other organisations in Barton and
Dunstall who can apply for grants of up to £10,000 or
individuals whom we may help with grants of up to £500”
said Jacqui Jones, trustee of the Barton & Dunstall Key Trust
