Girl Guides from Ilkeston will visit five European countries as part of a competition called Jailbreak.

The girls will be visiting Slovakia, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania and taking part in challenges to earn their bail as part of the competition with teams of Guides from all over the Midlands.

The six 15-to-17 year-olds and two leaders have been busy putting the final touches to their plans, including arranging to meet local Scouts and Guides and travelling by as many different forms of transport possible.

Assistant leader, Vicky Powers, said “I’m very proud of the adventurous route the team has chosen and I know we are going to have a great time. It would be good to tell more local people about what we are doing and to get some extra support in our fundraising efforts.”

A coffee morning raised £96.45 to help fund the trip.
