'A real example to others'

Girls' Brigade member Milly Keenan, of Ararat Baptist Church in Cardiff, attended the Children's Christmas Party at Number 10 Downing Street, where she presented Prime Minister Theresa May with a special GB Christmas present - a Fudge the floppy dog toy.

MillyEight-year-old Milly is from 17th Cardiff. She was selected to attend as a representative of GB because she is so helpful in her group - setting up and tidying away the activities, being friendly to other members of the group, and helping the new/younger members to settle in and enjoy the activities.

GB's Mission Co-ordinator Hannah Field said, 'Milly is a real example to others, and helps to demonstrate that every contribution counts and that age is no barrier to making a difference.'  

Milly was joined by her mum Sally, brother Max, and aunt Rachel Powell, Team Leader of 17th Cardiff.

Milly said hello to Boris Johnson as the group entered Downing Street, and gave GB's gift to Theresa May and wished her a merry Christmas. Theresa May also asked her if she had enjoyed the party.

She said, 'The party was fun! I enjoyed seeing Santa, playing parachute games, making a t-shirt, and giving a present to Theresa May. Plus it was the first time I've been to London.'
Aunt Rachel added, 'I felt really proud that Milly was chosen for being helpful at our GB group. She has been at GB for four years and knows the routines so she's always helpful to the leaders. I know this is an experience that she'll always remember and I’m happy to have shared it with her.'
Milly said 'I enjoy being part of GB because I’ve got lots of friends there who go to different schools so I get to see them on a Friday and have fun. I like being helpful and helping all the leaders in GB because it’s fun.'
