Rainbows, Brownies and Guides from across the whole of Burnley came together today to do a sponsored walk in aid of the Girl Guide Branch Associations in the Caribbean, so badly affected by Hurricane Irma last year.

It was a very happy, colourful event with quite a number dressing to the Caribbean theme with carnival masks, flowers and skirts, there were even one or two pirates as Guides walked 5km, Brownies 3.5km and Rainbows 2km. In total 20 Rainbows, 60 Brownies and 15 Guides attended with their leaders and lots of parents.

With refreshments donated by Tesco’s in the Community, a great day was had by all and 2 long service awards to Linda Smith and Nicola Mitchell were also celebrated.
