MEMBERS of the Dollar Brownies and Guides held their annual Children in Need fundraiser recently to raise money for charity.

The group host an event every year and this year it took place at Burnside Hall in Dollar.

Visitors were treated to a host of great stalls including temporary tattoos, games and bandanas for dogs, all organised by the group months in advance.

Raffles were on offer and there was plenty of treats to be enjoyed, including home baked cakes and biscuits.

District commissioner Tricia Davenport was thrilled with the event and the money raised.

She said: “We had a great turnout with lots of locals and parents turning up.

“There was plenty of games stalls and also tea and coffee for the parents.”

The night raised £420 which will be given to Children in Need.

Tricia explained how much preparation went into the event and that the children have been making the arrangements for months.

She said the youngsters need no motivation to get involved and it’s a venture they all enjoy being a part of.

Tricia said: “The kids love doing it and they love being involved.

“They’ve been busy preparing since summer making these dog bandanas.”

Children in Need has been raising money for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK since 1980.

The total amount of money raised this year was £47,886,382.
