Sisters, Caitlyn, Cerryn (9) and Gemma (8), of 2nd Kinloss Brownies decided to speak about the lack of PPE for NHS workers in a letter to the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. The girls' have been putting their time in lockdown to good use as they call on the Prime Minister to provide more personal protective equipment to the NHS and other key workers.
The three girls were inspired by the 'speaking out' interest badge to take action about the lack of equipment for key workers that they saw on the news. The trio were inspired by the adverts they had seen on the TV thanking key workers for the hard work they had been doing during the outbreak and decided to make an advert of their own (as can be seen above).
They also made a song to the tune of 'we will rock you' with the words 'we say, we say, thank you' in order to raise awareness and thank the key workers.
In order to challenge decision-makers, the trio sent a letter to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. In the letter they said:
"We saw the news about PPE. It made us feel sad as people could lose their lives or have lost their life.
It's not really good to think that people that you love and know could be at risk. We have family and neighbours who are nurses and health workers and police and our brother is a postman and our mum is a key worker."
They continued: "Can you please give more protection equipment to the NHS carers and key workers so they can help in this time of need."
