Top Brownie on 58 badges

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - THE DIARY -

A GIRL has be­come the most dec­o­rated Brownie in the land by earn­ing 58 badges in three years.

Amelia Wood, 10, worked for all 57 avail­able – in­clud­ing horse rid­ing and ca­noe­ing – but scooped two in craft­ing.

Mum He­len Wood, 41, said: “She’s ended up with 58 in­stead of 57 be­cause she works hard. When she had to do her ca­noe­ing, she was scared of wa­ter.”

Girl Guide leader He­len, of Leeds, had 35 Brownie badges at Amelia’s age.

Amelia, who wants to be a doc­tor, said: “Now I’m look­ing for­ward to Guides to get all those badges too.”
