New Badges for Dalkeith Brownies

Having fun and playing games, making friends, and taking part in a wide range of skill-based activities is what being a member of the Brownies is all about.

When the 2nd Dalkeith Brownies got in touch with our Community Fund looking for support to help buy a range of new skills builder badges we were delighted to help out.

With themes such as camping, communication and first aid as well as various home-based skills where badges can be earned there’s lots of new skills that will be rewarded with a special badge.

Vicky Featherstonehaugh from the 2nd Dalkeith Brownies said: “Brownies have such a lot of fun with their friends and badges play a very important role.  It gives each girl a real sense of accomplishment and encourages them to learn new skills either as a group or as an individual. The funding from the Cameron Toll Community Fund allows us to buy a range of badges that our Brownies can work towards achieving.”

Claire Jefcoate, centre manager at Cameron Toll said: “Learning new skills at a young age is so important and being able to assist with funding new badges to encourage the 2nd Dalkeith Brownies is a pleasure to do.”
