Memories, like the corners of my mind...

Misty water-coloured memories
Of the way we were

This is a request, a plea really. Last month, 749 Guides, Brownies, Rangers and their leaders took over PGL Liddington. An amazing weekend was had by all and many many happy memories were formed. Memories that will hopefully stay with the girls long into adulthood.

We would like to preserve those memories, and the plan is to send each unit a memory stick with the photos taken at the weekend on it, so that each girl has the opportunity to keep them. However, we have no money in our budget to pay for them. Being an unfunded, voluntary organisation our coffers are somewhat limited and this is one of those times.

I've been tweeting mercilesslly since our return, begging for unwanted memory sticks any other bloggers, twitter followers or organisations might have. Last week, thanks to some retweets from much bigger bloggers (Helen of Fuss Free Flavours and Jules of Butcher, Baker to name but two) one PR company said that they knew someone who could help, unfortunately they couldn't find the budget to fulfill their intial promise.

So, I'm putting out a call to arms (well, not quite) if ANY bloggers/ readers/ PRs out there can help with memory sticks I would, and 749 girls and young women would be eternally grateful. We only want 56 memory sticks - one per unit that attended. As a County of 3,000 we regularly need promotional materials, and a donation of this sort would definitely put you in our minds for future events and activities.

If you can't help yourself - please could you share this post, on facebook/ Twitter/ Stumbleupon or Pinterest - even to your email address list in case someone out there can and will help us. If you can help us, if you would contact me either here in the comments, or at that would be amazing.

As a Guide, I believe in thinking of others before myself and would me incredibly thankful if you would help us.

Yours in Guiding
