A group of girl guides from Kirkwall recently handed over a cheque to Womens’ Aid Orkney, after a fundraising drive.

The 2nd Kirkwall Guides handed over £512.50 to their leader Michelle Robertson, who is also service manager with the womens’ aid charity, after undertaking various fundraising activities, including filling Smarties tubes with money and a sponsored swim.

According to the guides, after hearing about the good work done by WAO the girls felt motivated to raise funds and decided to do good turns around the county.

Michelle Robertson said: “All the girls proved that ‘Girls Can’ and I am extremely proud of them. They are creative, hard-working effective contributors in our local community.”
