Special award for Edwinstowe’s Ella

Edwinstowe Brownie Ella Howarth (7) was presented with a special award at her unit meeting last week by Girlguiding Nottinghamshire’s County Commissioner Jackie Brocklehurst. The Celtic Cross is given to mark exceptional courage, loyalty and commitment, particularly in the face of illness or disability.

Ella, who was a member of Rainbows before moving up to 2nd Edwinstowe Brownies, is in remission from cancer and was nominated for the award by Brown Owl Linda Broom. ‘Ella is one of the happiest and most caring girls I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting,’ said Linda in her nomination. ‘She always shows great kindness to her Girlguiding friends and rushes through the door on Monday evenings with a huge eager smile on her face!’

Ella and her fellow Brownies shared a massive cake after the presentation – it was decorated with sweeties with ‘Well Done Ella’ in bright icing across the top.

‘Ella’s citation reminds us of how incredibly brave she has been, and of how much she is valued by all her Rainbow and Brownie friends, said County Commissioner Jackie Brocklehurst. ‘She’s a very special and courageous girl – and is a true credit both to her family and to Girlguiding in Nottinghamshire.’
