Sally Thornton Thanks Fund

27 June 2013

Sally at Sangam

As a special thank you for all that Sally Thornton has given to our World Centres and WAGGGS, we have established the Sally Thornton Thanks Fund in her honour.

'I have had the time of my life working, living and sharing in the World Centres. It has been an amazing journey and I thank every one of you who has been on the journey with me. I am immensely proud of all that has been achieved with my teams at Sangam and here at Our Chalet and feel very fortunate to have called both World Guiding homes my home. The years spent learning about life and what is important while in exotic India and the past 4 years spent in the pristine but challenging mountain beauty of Switzerland have been a not to be missed adventure!' -Sally Thornton

This fund will be used to provide scholarships to girls and young women all around the world to come to Sangam. We want to spread the Sangam Spirit...join us!

Watch the launch of the Sally Thornton Thanks Fund.

Happy Birthday to you, Sally---delighted that you have made it all the way to Sangam to celebrate--thanks for all your leadership--especially at Our Chalet these past four plus years. Take care and enjoy! Cheers!

What a wonderful recognition of Sally's great contribution to Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting. This fund will provide great opportunities for girls and young women who would not otherwise be able to meet, share and learn with members from all over the world. Congratulations and best wishes for the launch. And Happy Birthday, Sally!

What an honor for an outstanding World Centre Manager! I had the opportunity of meeting Sally at Sangam during Sangam's 40th Anniversary and then at several events around the world. Thank you very much for all you have done and I really really appreciate it. All the Best Sally and Keep Up The Good Work!

Definitely I will join if the time fits my weekend schedule. Anyway, I will be thinking of both the world centres and especially Sally on her birthday - and I am looking so much forward to spending some days at Baby Chalet in the week to come....

Happy Birthday, Sally! The Thanks Fund is a very appropriate tribute to you. We all thank you so much for your years of tireless service at both Sangam and Our Chalet.
