30 days of care challenge
30 days of care planned for June 2019
North Lonsdale Division have devised a unique challenge to support St Mary’s Hospice, Ulverston, as it celebrates 30 years giving care and support in the South Lakes community.
The division has been working with Clare Tonkin, Area Fundraiser for the Hospice, to devise a 30 days of care sponsored challenge to take place throughout June whereby girls and adults are challenged each day to do something caring for themselves, other people at home, in the community or for the environment.
We have provided a list of challenges/tasks for the girls to choose from each day. The list is by no means exhaustive and it would be lovely to encourage the girls to come up with their own ideas as well. Perhaps have a pow wow at your unit meeting prior to starting the event to discuss ideas.
The packs can be photocopied for the girls in each unit or they can easily be downloaded from 30 days of care challenge.
Take part in the challenge
We have suggested that the girls are sponsored 50p per task and that they try to ask 30 different people to sponsor them.
Leaders may wish to choose a challenge/task to be done in a unit meeting. Maybe organise a litter pick with the girls or make bird feeders or something else of their choosing.
We hope everyone has fun and, of course, we hope that, together, Girlguiding Cumbria South can raise lots of money for St Mary’s Hospice.
When the challenge is over the money and sponsor forms should be sent to Janice Thompson or Janice Lloyd, Lindal Brownies by Monday 8th July. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
We plan to present a cheque to the Hospice on the evening of Tuesday, 9th July, details to follow.
This is an amazing opportunity for us to make a real difference in the community and to support such a special place as St Mary’s Hospice.
