Brownhills Brownies need your help!


Brownhills Brownies recently at a Christmas fayre. That’s an excellent Christmas jumper! Image supplied by Jenny from Brownhills Brownies.

I’ve been contacted by Jenny at the St James Brownies up at St James in Ogley Hay to ask if you could help by voting in a competition they’re entering for community group funding, from galaxy hot Chocolate.

The 2nd Brownies in Brownhills are a popular and active group who can often be seen out and about on activities, and a little community funding could help them do more with improved sports equipment and trips out.

If you have a wee lass that might be interested, you can go find out why the group are all about – it’s for girls aged 7-10 years old, and takes place at St James Church Hall on Tuesday evenings at 6.45pm.

If your little one isn’t so little, there’s also Girl Guides from ages 10-14 on Mondays at 6:30pm. See this section of the St. James website here.

Anyway, on with the appeal. Jenny wrote:

2nd Brownhills (St James) Brownies, Brownhills, Walsall

We are a Brownie group from Brownhills in the West Midlands.

We are a great bunch and enjoy many different activities such as crafts, cooking, games, badges, sports and lots more! We like having fun and learning new skills. Brownies is great for girls to get to know each other and mix with girls from different schools.

We provide a safe and relaxed environment where girls can have fun and make new friends.


We would use the money to buy new resources for our programme. We are in need of some new sports equipment and a new lockable storage cupboard to keep it in. We would also like to buy some new craft items and put some money towards a trip for the girls.

Galaxy Chocolate is looking to help small, local community projects and groups through the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund.

From 7 November 2016 until 26 February 2017, they will be awarding seventy £300 donations to help community groups and people across UK and Ireland. Five donations will be awarded each week, four by our panel of judges and one through the People’s Choice award to the organisation with the most weekly votes.

They are also offering the opportunity to nominate an ‘Outstanding Volunteer Award’, giving you the chance of nominating a volunteer who has shown commitment and gone the extra mile. Each week a volunteer winner will be chosen and will receive a ‘GALAXY Hot Chocolate Hamper’.

Please vote for us to win £300 for 2nd Brownhills (St.James) Brownies! Go to the following website to vote!
