The Rangeville Girl Guides hut has received a much-needed painting makeover thanks to a grant of $8,400.

District Manager Carolyn Atkins was pleased to recently receive a Gambling Community Benefit Fund grant to fund the painting of the hut’s exterior.

Mrs Atkins has been involved with the Rangeville Girl Guides for the past 18 years since her daughters joined in 2001.

“I was also a Brownie here at Rangeville when I was 10 years old,” Mrs Atkins said.

Member for Toowoomba South David Janetzki MP congratulated the guides on their successful grant and praised the group for their contribution to the community.

“Last term the junior girls worked on their pets badge where they cooked dog biscuits and handmade dog toys for the local RSPCA shelter,” Mr Janetzki said.

“These girls are learning from a young age the great feeling of accomplishment achieved while volunteering for their community,” he said.

Girl Guides Queensland this year celebrated their 100 year anniversary.

Mrs Atkins said they guided their members to act on issues they cared about in their community as a key part of their personal growth.
