Support for CEF from Randwick Girl Guides - Guest blog by Katie O'Connor, 1A Randwick Girl Guides, Sydney

'Randwick Girl Guides' baked their best and yummiest cakes, biscuits and slices to sell at their annual Bunnings BBQ and Bake Sale in Sydney. This year the annual BBQ and Bake Sale was held on 11 October - the 'UN International Day of the Girl Child' and so the Guides decided they wanted to donate all the money raised from the Bake Sale to a charity that supports girls' education.

'Randwick Guides' met Graeme Burn from Children's Education Foundation earlier in the year to learn about an advocacy topic they are all very passionate about - girls education. And so 'Randwick Girl Guides' worked very hard all day selling all their baked goods.


The girls worked on the stall with minimal supervision and assistance from leaders and parents. They did all the selling and informed people about this great cause they were raising money for and that it was the 'International Day of the Girl Child'. 

The day was a great success with the Guides raising enough money to support a girl of the same age as them to attend school in Vietnam! 'Randwick Guides' are very excited to learn more about the girl they will be supporting and look forward to sharing their journey of education together.
