Friends Beatrice Gordon and Biba Vincent, both aged 7 decided to set up a jewellery stall, B2 Bracelets outside Bea’s house on Deanfield Road to raise money for the NHS.
They said, “We wanted to find a way to get rid of this nasty virus, to help people and to let us get back to school.”
The girls made over 70 bracelets for the stall which included star, heart, letter and bow beads plus some had shells on, all in different colours. They held a Zoom meeting beforehand together to discuss the name of the stall, where it would be and when as well as prices (between £1-2) of the different bracelets and then starting making them.
Our Editor Michaela Clarke, was delighted to hear about this lovely project as Bea is one of her Brownies in the 1st Henley pack. She said, “We always encourage our Brownies do things in the community and as well as doing this Bea has completed the syllabus for her Charities badge.”
Bea’s Mum Nicola said, “They were very sensible, ensuring there was hand gel and that they kept 2 metres from customers when they came by! It was amazingly successful, lots of support from local friends, raising £175 for the NHS charities. Thank you to everyone who bought a bracelet and gave extra donations.”
