Brownies bring cheer


Added 05 December 2012


Brownie packs from Trinity Academy and St Winifred’s School assembled in the living room of the Bromswood Retirement Home yesterday to spread some Christmas cheer. To conclude their activities for this year, the 38 Brownies sang carols for the enjoyment of the seniors who reside at the facility. Brownie pack leader Marcia Marshall said that the students also collected non-perishable food items for a hamper that they presented to the residents. Marshall said that every year the Brownies tried to visit a facility as an outreach project. Manager of the Bromswood Retirement Home, Maraline Sobers, said the seniors were very appreciative of the children’s visit. (LK)
