Full of joy!

I need to shout this from the rooftops! Our division held a walk around the local reservoir for Thinking Day and units were asked to give their girls a small bottle of water in the weeks before and ask them to drink it then fill the bottle with coins. We also sent out a link to the WAGGGS water pack to give units a theme for their meetings.

We had more than 400 people turn up to the event and we are still counting the pennies and recycling the bottles - but we have gone over £1000! Everyone got a WAGGGS Think About Water badge.

The money will be split between Water Aid and the World Thinking Day Fund. Though the primary aim of the day was a division Thinking Day event and not a fundraiser, the theme really seems to have been embraced by the girls and leaders and I am so proud of them all for stepping up.

OK, that's it. Elvis has left the building.
