2nd Timperley Rainbows Support Go Orange for Orangutans!

Young Leader with 2nd Timperley Rainbows, Holly Owen has taken the lead to support Chester Zoo's campaign 'Go Orange for Orangutans'

Following their recent trip to Chester Zoo, Holly became more interested in animal welfare and was inspired to teach her unit more about the endangered animals.

Holly downloaded Chester Zoo's activity pack and showed the girls some pictures of Orangutans and explained how their natural habitat is being destroyed, putting the animals in danger.

The Rainbows have taken action by filling tubes of Smarties with 5p coins (after eating the chocolate of course) and are donating the proceeds to the worthwhile campaign.

So far, the Rainbows have raised a total of £65.00, with more money due in! Their plan is to send a cheque to the charity before the end of October, and the girls will get a certificate to congratulate them!
