Ten-year-old Holly Anglesea has become the first recipient of a special award following her adventures as part of the 1st Clowne St John Brownie pack.

Holly, who suffers from quadriplegia, a form of cerebral palsy, completed abseiling, canoeing, archery and fencing activities during her time with the brownies.

She was presented with the award from regional commissioner Lesley Knighton in front of her friends and family at a party held at Clowne Junior School.

A DVD of her accomplishments and to celebrate the groups centenary year were shown during a surprise party held in her honour.

Holly moved up to Guides in September, where Pack leader Julie Brigham said she will be faced with a new set of challenges.

“She adores it, it is something she looks forward to every week,” she added.

“She has done everything despite her disability.”

“It was a great achievement.”
