Top award for guide

Have your say

A 14-year-old Guide is set to receive a top award.

Elizabeth Gray, from Stowmarket, is a young leader at 1st Stowmarket Guides and is due to receive the Baden Powell Challenge Award next month.

The challenge award is split into five different sections: healthy lifestyles, global awareness, discovery, skills and relationships, and celebrating diversity.

To complete it she had to take part in the Baden Powell Adventure, travelling to Our Chalet, Switzerland, in April – one of four world centres of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

After months of fund-raising, most of the 1st Stowmarket Guides visited Our Chalet.

Elizabeth will receive her award at a special party on October 12.
