Guide leader Lydia is going for Gold
A BROWNIE leader has returned from the trip of a lifetime to help with community development work in Armenia.
Lydia Butler, an assistant leader with 2nd Durham Brownies, joined five Girl Guides for the Guiding Overseas Linked with Development (Gold) project for three weeks during July and August.
The 20-year-old ran training sessions for Armenian Girlguiding leaders and events encouraging girls to join local Brownie and Guide groups.
The second year Geography student at Durham University, who is originally from Saltash, Cornwall, said: “The highlight of my trip was meeting with girls and young women who are so enthusiastic to become members of Girlguiding.
“Gold has helped to highlight the activities which I enjoy and my skill set and I hope that this will help me when applying for jobs after university.”
