Girl guides in Norwich will soon be able to explore the great outdoors thanks to a grant for new tents and groundsheets.
The 6th Norwich Guides group was given �322 from the Co-operative Group's community fund.
Guide leader Michelle Ward said: 'By purchasing this equipment we are able to offer more of our girls the chance to experience camping as a group and with other groups. These excursions will help them grow in confidence, gain independence and develop many new skills.'
The fund offers grants of between �100 and �2,000 and awards are based on a set of values and principles such as social responsibility and caring for others.
