Eve Belle care home in Wickford, operated by Sanders Senior Living, were honoured to present care home resident, Gwen, with a framed badge for her dedication to the Wickford’s Brownie Guides over the years, and to celebrate 100 years since the service began.
The celebration was attended by family, friends, and members of the Wickford Brownie Guides to mark the special occasion.
During Gwen’s time as a Brownie, she walked 30 miles to fundraise towards providing a brownie’s mum with a motorised car. Gwen has also dedicated much of her life to the Brownies and led the 1st Runwell Brownie pack.
Arrianne Concepcion, Home Manager for Eve Belle, said:
“We were delighted to invite the Wickford District Brownies into Eve Belle, to celebrate and commemorate such a special occasion – 100 years of girl guiding in Wickford is such a wonderful achievement, and we’re so proud of Gwen for being part of this movement. To celebrate with the Brownies, Gwen’s family, and our community of residents in the home, was really special; a huge thank you to all who attended.”
