“The newly launched Brownie badges have been updated to reflect the modern world. The girls will learn about teamwork, taking responsibility, personal relationships and leadership.

"We aim to encourage the girls to make a positive contribution to the groups they work in, their local community and society as a whole.

“Our unit sends a big Brownie thank you for this wonderful donation!”

The family-run supermarket group supported the Brownies through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity, which raises funds from the sale of selected products in stores and via in-store collecting tins.
