It’s competition time - can you design a winning badge?

Say thank you to the key workers supporting us through Covid-19 with a brand-new badge design

07 May 2020

It’s been a bit of a strange year so far, hasn’t it? We’ve been asked to stay inside and away from lots of people to save lives and protect our healthcare services.

There are lots of people that are making sure we still have all the services we need to keep safe during this time.

Girlguiding want to say a huge thank you to all key workers and volunteers during Covid-19, and what better way to show our thanks than an amazing new badge. Not only that – but one designed by you!

Our competition to design a badge is now closed.

Here's our winning design:

Well done Pippa! Her design will be turned into a badge and available to buy from our online shop.

And don't forget - we’re going to donate 50% of the profits made from this badge to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal, which is supporting the amazing healthcare workers and volunteers during this time.
