Girl Guides have all the write stuff to help

IT'S not often you find teenagers excited about stationery, however for the Warwick Girls Guides it's all part of the fun.

As part of their Ready For Action badge the girls are collecting the stationary gear to help the QCWA's international project Kits for Kids.

It's a project that helps to provide classroom items to disadvantaged schools in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Fiji.

"We had to decide which charity we would help out," guide Rachel Alder said.

"There was dressmaking, knitting and disaster care packs but this project is run by Australians."

Fellow guide Jasmine Stephens said: "We take stuff like stationery for granted so it's nice to help out."

Guide leader Julie Frizzell said the badge was about helping others and developing organisational skills.

"The Ready For Action badge is broken down into steps for the girls to follow," she said.

"R.E.A.D.Y stands for research, explore, action, do it and patrol involvement".

As part of the guide law to "make choices for a better world" the girls will be collecting the stationery items over the next few weeks.
