A Legacy of £500 made a difference to girls in our Division

Pam, from Girlguiding Rutland Division, tells us how a legacy of £500 is making a legendary impact on the lives of girls in her area

It was a real surprise to receive this gift in a will - it's really going to help our Division do more. 

We put it towards the international fund because this gives our girls and young women the chance to have special experiences they may not otherwise have.

It's also allowed us to help Brownies go on UK trips, which we would never have been able to do before.

A lasting impact

International trips help girls have experiences that stay with them for the rest for their lives. I speak to former Guides who are now in their forties who still remember what an amazing time they had on their international guiding adventure. It improves their lives and gives them the opportunity to see the world from a different perspective.

International trips with guiding are different to those with a school because it is up to the young people themselves to decide what they want to see and do. It teaches girls loads of leadership skills.

Any legacy of any size will always be put to good use when it is given to Girlguiding.
