Congratulations to 2nd Callington Guides who have been named as the winners of 10 tickets to 'Cookafest', the exciting Region event at Exeter in July. Three hundred and six Units qualified for the draw, one draw entry being awarded for every five purchases/donations made through 'Easyfundraising' during the six week period leading up to Christmas. Although 2nd Callington Guides have been running for a long time, they are new to Easyfundraising and have Pippa Reid to thank for their good fortune - and for raising £12 in donations from just two fundraisers! When Pippa joined the Unit as a Leader, she says, "I was looking for an easy way to raise Unit funds for us and it occurred to me that I could sign us up for Easyfundraising. She found the site "really easy to use" and is determined to build on the funds they have raised so far, "This year we intend to get as many people on board with it as we can". Pippa is still getting over the surprise of being the first name out of the hat and says the girls will be really excited about going to Cookafest. The best bit though? "We've raised £12 so far. Which is £12 more than we had before"!
