Filey Lions Support Guide Leaders work in Thailand
Charlotte Dickinson and Florence Hargreaves head out to Thailand on 18 July after being selected from a pool of 40 to form a team of 12 to do a community project in Thailand called Valuing Girls. The team will be led by four adult leaders and the friends have been busy fundraising to make sure they secure their place on the trip. Each girl has raised £2,000 which includes a donation of £250 each from Filey Lions.
Charlotte said, “I have been a member of girlguiding since I was five and the trip to Thailand will be a once in a lifetime experience. At the moment it doesn’t seem real, and I don’t think it will until I’m there! Florence and I are close friends outside the organisation and it’s great to be going with someone who I get along with so well.”
Florence added, “I’m excited to be working with fellow Girl Guides in Thailand as it will be great to understand their culture whilst hopefully offering support to help these girls in the future who are less fortunate than myself.”
