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.”
