Guiding light

Laura Crane is taking the Happy House into the 5th Thornton Guides, Lancashire, as one of the challenges of her Baden Powell Badge.
One of the categories is global awareness by finding out about the life of a child in the global south and to organise an activity to help an individual or group .
As Laura had heard all about Happy House from her mum, Carol, she decided to highlight our family.
Laura organised a cake sale at St John the Evangelist CE Church after a Sunday service, and invited Elizabeth Gomm to go along to guides last night to talk about our family and to hand over the £50 she had raised.
Elizabeth talked about our family and the local community, showed them two videos and answered lots and lots of questions about the way our children live and the things they enjoy doing.
Laura, a pupil at Millfield School, is pictured above, with guide leader Karen Stretch (Left) and her mum, Carol, who is a guide helper, and also presenting the money raised by her cake sale to Elizabeth.
Thank you to Laura and all those who help bake and sell cakes and to everyone at St John's who supported them.
