Hannah Bowen aged 9 years lives in Belton-in-Rutland and is a member of Uppingham 1st Brownies. As part of the Girlguiding Centenary, Uppingham Brownies is supporting the charity Smalls for All which collects and distributes underwear to women and children in Africa.
They help those living in slums, orphanages, Internally Displaced Person
(IDP) camps, schools and hospitals.
Please see link www.smallsforall.org
The charity are appealing for;
New Ladies pants size 8-16
New girls pants age 3-15
New or gently worn bras
Providing underwear can make a huge difference. for example, not having underwear means young girls miss days off school each month.
Hannah would be grateful to collect donations of any of the items listed above. Please either drop donations to 12 Main Street or email [email protected] to arrange collection. Closing date is 13th July.
