Sports cash boost for Brownies
by Tom Martin

A BROWNIES group has been awarded with a £300 cash boost to buy new sports equipment.

The 9th Bootle and Litherland Brownies successfully secured the funds from Beech Housing Association (BHA) to stock up on arts, crafts and leisure equipment.

The club applied to the housing provider's Neighbourhood Fund and were delighted to be awarded the money.

Helen Smith, Brownies Leader, said: “This grant award means a lot to our group. We were in desperate need of some new sports equipment and craft materials so the money will be put to very good use.”

The Brownies are open to any girls aged between seven and ten years-old and the group meet every Thursday at the British Legion Club in Litherland.

Members can take part in a variety of activities including cookery, art and crafts, day trips, holidays and trying out new hobbies.

Lindsay Greenhalgh, the Neighbourhood Development Officer from BHA, said: “Activities for young people are essential in our communities; they provide a safe environment for youngsters to spend their spare time and enjoy trying our new activities.

”We are thrilled that we have been able to support the club by purchasing the new equipment. I hope they have many hours of fun using it.“
