Pedal power for guide leaders
GUIDE leader Sue Howell is embarking on the journey of a lifetime to boost the Girlguiding Association’s centenary fund.
Sue, from Foxton, is joining fellow leaders Christine Turnbull and Suzanne McBride on a bike ride from Paris to Geneva.
They plan to complete the trip in four days, with all the money raised going to Girlguiding UK’s centenary fund.
She said: “I’m looking forward to facing the challenge and especially the unique camaraderie in the all-female team.
“I would encourage anyone who loves a challenge and adventure to come and volunteer with Guiding.”
Twenty Guide leaders from around the country will be making the journey, and the three women from Cambridgeshire hope to raise more than �3,000.
Sue Carpenter, Cambridgeshire county commissioner, said: “I am so pleased that our three leaders are taking part in this adventure, which requires much dedication to their training and fundraising.
