Brownies from Alexandria had a magical time at an exclusive screening of Disney's Frozen 2.

Girls from 2nd Vale of Leven Brownies were among more than 40,000 Girlguiding members who attended the mass screenings at Odeon cinemas across the UK.

The eagerly awaited sequel follows Elsa as she sets out on an exciting journey with Anna Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, to discover why she was born with magical powers.

The girls from the Vale of Leven loved the fact they could enjoy the new film about such beloved characters with fellow Girlguiding members from across their area.

Eight-year-old Emily Rankin, who attended the event, said: “The film was amazing, much better than the first one and I loved watching it with my friends.

"All the songs in it were great and Olaf was really funny.”

Karen Ackland, unit leader, said: “The girls had a great time at the special screening.

"I love that Girlguiding gives girls the chance for exciting opportunities like this and it was wonderful to see how much they enjoyed the film.”

A special badge has been created for Girlguiding members to mark the event.

The organisation offers girls as young as four the opportunity to be independent, learn new skills, gain confidence, make new friends and have fun.

In September, almost half a million Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers and volunteers across the UK came together to tackle plastic pollution.

Girls made a #PlasticPromise to reduce their single-use plastic, for example by using a re-usable lunch box.

As a commitment to #PlasticPromise at the Frozen 2 screenings, fresh popcorn was served in cardboard boxes and water was available in aluminium cans.

The charity offers all girls aged five to 18 the chance to take part in a wide and varied programme, incorporating everything from world issues and science to adventure and international travel.

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK.
