Thank you to those Leaders who completed the survey to tell me which charities your unit would like to see the Region raise money for as part of the Chief's Charity Challenge 2020-21. The top 10 charities selected by you can now be revealed!
- Cancer Research UK
- The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association
- Macmillan Cancer Support
- British Heart Foundation
- World Wildlife Fund
- Alzheimer's Society
Now it's time for you to begin the second part of the Challenge and start your fundraising! This could be limited to one special event, or you may choose to raise money in lots of different ways over a whole year. There are some fundraising ideas on the Girlguiding Website - and the Region will be producing a sheet of suggestions which you might find useful. We will include this in a future Region Newsletter.
Any money collected should be sent to the Region Office (you will find more information about this, plus the website addresses for the chosen charities, by clicking here). Any funds you raise will be held by us until the end of the Challenge and your unit will then be sent a certificate to mark your involvement and recording the total amount you have contributed. The closing date for this part of the Challenge is Thinking Day 2021.
I hope that together we will achieve my target of raising £70,000! This will be divided evenly between all 10 charities and presented to them at the Region's 50th birthday event at Wincanton Racecourse on 22nd May 2021.
