Three groups joined forces to celebrate the Royal Wedding and raise money for charity.

Beehives pre-schoolers and the Rainbows and Brownies of Salcombe came together not only to celebrate Meghan and Harry tying the knot, but to raise money for the Kingsbridge Triangle Centre as well as present girl guiding leader Hazel Burkitt with a service award.

The afternoon was held at the Cliff House, and everyone showed their national pride by dressing in red, white and blue. After tea, the children were treated to a performance by Billy Wiz the Magician.

Girlguiding commissioner Sarah Stephens also presented Hazel for her 20 years service as a guiding leader, or ‘Brown Owl’. Hazel also did stints as the Kingsbridge district commissioner and secretary.

Hazel, who organised the day said: “It was a lovely afternoon full of fun and traditions such as singing the national anthem prior to tea. Special thanks to Alex Parkinson, Sue Hosking, Christine Sinnott and Peggy Jeffrey for their help.”

Hazel and her team like to talk to the children and encourage them to give back to the community, so at £1.50 a head, it enabled them to give back. A donation of £150 was given to the Triangle Centre in Kingsbridge, which operates a drop-in clinic on Tuesdays.
