A YORKLEY Brownie group hope to break a world record with children’s television show Blue Peter to create the world’s longest superhero cape.
The 1st Yorkley Brownies is one of 100 Girlguiding groups across the UK taking part in the challenge – which will celebrate the positive difference they make in their community.
Girls have been busy putting the finishing touches to a colourful ‘spot’ which will adorn the enormous cape – predicted to measure a record-breaking 44 metres long.
The finished cape, decorated with 100 spots created by Girlguiding groups across the UK, will be unveiled live on the CBBC show tomorrow (Thursday) to mark Children in Need.
The Brownies decided to decorate their spot featuring their community work which includes volunteering at Forest Pulse where they raised £118 for the group by taking part in a sponsored walk, litter picking, and clearing up after a local Relay for Life event.
Group leader, Emma Steel said: “We love spending time with the children at Forest Pulse, and have included our sponsored walk on our Children in Need superhero spot.
“We feel that more important even than sending money, is to join together with Forest Pulse and integrate both groups where we can – Brownies and Forest Pulse benefit from being together; they really enjoy it.”
