Dunmow Rotary Club has raised £700 for a group of west Essex guides and rangers, for a trip to a jamboree in Croatia.
Willie Fraiser, club president, organised a fundraising brunch at the Rowena Davey Centre on July 28, attended by 70 guests.
The guests were greeted by the guides and rangers as well as their leaders, who all cooked and served sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, beans and tomatoes, followed by fresh fruit as well as tea and coffee.
Whilst in Croatia, the guides will meet other local guides and also visit Venice and Slovenia.
Traditional pub games were also on offer, such as skittles and shove halfpenny. The event finished with two musicians performing well-known numbers.
