5th Urmston Brownies is a girl-guiding group led by adults and parents who all live locally. They support young girls aged 7-11 years to become independent, make a positive impact on their own lives and their local community.

Girls from different backgrounds, including those with additional needs, benefit greatly from being involved where they grow in confidence, meet new friends whilst learning skills and earning badges.

During the pandemic they successfully adapted to meeting virtually to provide continued emotional and wellbeing support, however it highlighted a lack of home resources available to some of the girls. 5th Urmston Brownies set about raising funds to help secure the resources for home use to enable the girls to be supported and further their development.

One child who attends is part of a large family who struggles financially. She is a bubbly girl who likes to participate in everything. The Brownies have been able to support her by subsiding her annual membership fee, and providing uniform and resources to enable her to gain vital life skills and experiences.

5th Urmston Brownies has been shortlisted for the Transforming Lives Award to be presented at Forever Manchester’s Birthday Party on Friday 10th February 2023.

The award is given in recognition of a group of local people who, through the work they do, have helped transform the lives of others.
