Over 130 guests gathered for a ball at Cranage Hall, Crewe, hosted by the Cheshire Border Girl Guides. An auction and raffle was held during the event, and combined with match funding from Barclays and Mercer, helped to raise £4000 which will go towards members taking part in international opportunities over the next two years. Destinations include Japan, Gambia, Costa Rica, Nepal and California.

Entertainment was provided by live music from the band Undercover.

The ball was held on World Thinking Day, where Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from across the world celebrate international friendship and take action on important issues.
