ON Friday April 22, around 150 girls from girl guiding Tamworth came together to dance, sing, laugh and have fun in aid of two charity’s, The Midlands Air Ambulance and The Blue Cross!
The event was organised by 2nd Glascote brownies for a badge called ‘search rescue’ they have been working on, the spring ball was hosted by Montys indoor adventure the former Rainbows play world.
The girls from this unit have been learning about the emergency services and animal rescue, they wanted to give something back to them. Leader Kim Smith asked the girls for ideas on how to raise money and the girls asked if they could do something for other brownies in Tamworth. They came up with idea of a spring ball for other units in Tamworth.
Leader Kim knew Montys indoor adventure hosted disco parties so she got in touch with owner Mark Bant to see if he could help; “I contacted Mark explaining my idea and he was more then happy to help make the event happen”
Girls from all over Tamworth were invited and 14 units attended,from rainbows to guides.Money was raised by selling tickets and £600 was raised. The girls enjoyed a night of dancing and singing to their favourite tunes with Monty himself, with the help of Montys very own DJ Katie Crossland who kept the girls entertained all evening. With bubble machines, smoke machines and foam the girls got to experience a full on Montys disco, even the adult leaders were up dancing the night away.
The night ended with a huge Monty conga leaded by the main bear himself. Every girl went home smiling and telling parents how amazing the event was.
Leader Kim told Tamworth Informed: “I would like to say a special thanks to all of the units that attended. I and the 2nd Glascote Brownies are amazed at how many attended to make this event happen.
“I would also like to thank the owners of Montys Indoor Adventure, Mark and Angela Bant, and all staff for helping put on a fantastic event. I am looking forward to working with them again for future guiding events.”
