What will you do with this year’s Wish money?

With any Wish funds raised this year we want to take the Guides camp­ing next year to an in­ter­na­tional camp in the UK. For this we would need to buy tents. The ben­e­fit would be that we’d be able to go camp­ing and meet Guides from around the world. At camp we’d also learn new skills and take part in new ac­tiv­i­ties.

Tell us about your group.

We are a group of 34 guides aged be­tween ten and 14 who meet weekly to take part in a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties. We en­joy meet­ing new peo­ple, learn­ing new skills and be­ing part of a girl-only or­gan­i­sa­tion. We love go­ing on res­i­den­tials so we can learn to be­come in­de­pen­dent and cre­ate life­long mem­o­ries.

What kind of ac­tiv­i­ties take place at your group?

There are a wide va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties that our mem­bers can get in­volved in – from crafts and out­ings to games and badge work.

Who is the long­est serv­ing mem­ber of your group?

That would be Joanne Hogg who has been a leader for 29 years.

Tell us about the big­gest or best ac­tiv­ity or event your group has or­gan­ised.

There are many ac­tiv­i­ties that we have or­gan­ised over the years but I think that the most mem­o­rable would have to be to­bog­gan­ing in Switzer­land.

What is your group’s proud­est mo­ment to date?

Our proud­est mo­ment was tak­ing a group of 14 Guides and lead­ers to Switzer­land for 10 days in Au­gust this year.

Why should some­one join your group?

Lots of rea­sons to join our group – our mem­bers have lots of fun and make new friends.

What makes you proud to be from the North-east us­ing five words?

Friend­ship, car­ing, hap­pi­ness, op­por­tu­ni­ties and lo­ca­tion
