The Brownies filled more than 1,000 envelopes containing the magazine and accounts to be sent out to every HAPPA member and supporter.

Overseen by Julie Rickwood-Gan, Happa’s development officer, 15 Brownies, one young leader and two leaders all formed a perfect production line to undertake the task.

Louise Bleasdale, Snowy Owl, said: “They were like a well oiled wheel by the end. We are so proud of the girls for carrying out this community work to help a busy and important local charity, and especially on a Sunday which is not our usual meeting day.

“After a lovely fuel stop for refreshments provided by the excellent catering staff in The Scullery cafe, Julie then kindly gave the girls a tour of the facilities and a chance to meet some of the resident horses and hear their rescue stories. The girls had a fun and informative day out while gaining valuable skills for the future such as team work and delegation.”
