If you were in the Isaac Newton Shopping Centre last Saturday you would have seen the Trefoil Guild’s tombola raising funds for their group and the Grantham Journal Children’s Fund.

By doing so they raised just over £300. The Trefoil Guild’s Maureen Hill said: “We want to say thank you to the people of Grantham who gave so generously to the two charities.” The Journal team is also grateful for the funds which will go towards our Legoland Summer Sizzler Appeal.

The Trefoil Guild allows adults to explore the world through Guiding. Although to many being a Guide suggests one’s childhood years, the guild offers the same opportunities and world experiences to both older men and women too, with no age limit.

Sitting alongside Girlguiding, the groups agree to follow the exact same ethos, with over 1,100 guilds up and down the country, abroad, and even solely online.

With a strong pledge for helping people, many will pass on the skills they learn to local Guiding and Brownie groups.

Some members will also offer a helping hand in the aftermath of natural disasters, as well as other international problems.
