Thinking Day 2011
All Brownies in the borough were invited to particpate in World Thinking Day at Cornerstone in Wokingham. The theme was gender equality and over 100 Brownies enjoyed activities such as bracelet making, team building and "man job" dressing up using bags and imagination! A great evening was had by all.
We had a sponsored silence with an added twist - silence whilst playing games! For the leaders it was bliss - cuppa tea and a quiet, relaxing evening. For the girls it was torture, but they did extremely well and raised (at the last count) £46.60 to go towards their Comic Relief fund! Well done!
Don't forget on the 18th March we will be having another evening of stalls and competitions to raise even more - the girls have started planning their stalls already!
