Express Solicitors were recently asked if we could help and sponsor a race night to aid the unit of girl Guides from Reddish, Stockport in their fundraising for a trip to the World Centre for Guides in Switzerland called The Chalet. The Chalet is situated on the outskirts of Abelboden which is high up (4,500 feet) in the heart of the Bernese Oberland.
Some of the guides have never been abroad and as such would gain a massive amount from the trip of a lifetime as they are involved in all aspects of the planning and visit.
Express were keen to help by sponsoring the race night meaning that a fantastic £1200 raised on the night can go towards the cost of the trip and giving the guides opportunities to discover a completely different environment and culture from the one they know in the heart of Stockport.
“We’re really grateful to Express Solicitors for sponsoring our fundraising event. Guides for me is about having fun and gaining new experiences. In Switzerland I’m looking forward to doing exciting activities that I wouldn’t get the chance to do if it wasn’t for guides. I’m training as a leader now, so I can pass these skills to younger girls.” Abbie, 14.
