Shropshire Way Challenge

Posted by Martin Wynn

The Shropshire Way Challenge is for members of Girl Guiding Shropshire, between us, to walk the entire 200 miles of the newly way marked Shropshire Way between Thinking Day 2020 and Thinking Day 2021. You can do as much or little as you like, every step counts, and all participants can gain a badge for taking part. Some sections are easy, even wheelchair accessible, and others are much more challenging. If you don’t feel confident about taking girls out walking, then experienced leaders will be available to help. The challenge will include an I spy activity and geocaching may also be available in some sections.

Shropshire Cares – Shropshire Shares

This social action badge is in two sections, Shropshire cares is about being active in the community, maybe carol singing at an old peoples home or planting trees along the canal. Shropshire shares involves collecting and giving, this maybe toiletries for the Red Box Project, food for the foodbank or animal food for the cats and dogs home. Make your challenges as quirky as you want and don’t forget to share them on social media. These will allow units to take social action at all levels. Shropshire cares is about being active in the community and Shropshire shares allows you to collect and donate for a worthwhile cause – all of your girls choosing! Enjoy!!
