Lauren Ringer (16) from Gurnard Guides has been working on the BP (Baden Powell) Award for the last 2-3 years. For one of the challenges she undertook a 4 night trip away with St. George’s School and as she had never been away from her parents before this was a great challenge to her.

Lauren has worked consistently on the award over the last few years. Working away quietly, her experiences have included a trip to the theatre and taking up a new hobby of photography.
Lauren has been a Guide for over 4 years.

Lauren’s mother Amanda Ringer said “We are delighted that Lauren has achieved her Baden Powell Award.
We would like to thank Helen Coleman, the Guide Leader, Nicki her helper, and everyone on the team for the superb support they have given to Lauren over the last three years as she has worked steadily towards the award, something that seemed such an impossible, out of reach goal at the beginning. Lauren very much enjoys Guides and eagerly looks forward to her Guide meeting nights, especially if it’s cooking!”
