A Brownie leader has been selected to lead a group of Girl guides on a life-changing trip across Peru.

Caroline Brown of the 6th Chingford Brownies will travel with five other Girl Guiding members to the South American country on July 31 as part of a community development project.

During the four-week Guiding Overseas Linked with Development Scheme (GOLD) trip, the women will  travel to Lima and Tacna in the south and Sullana in the north to train Peruvian women in leadership skills, social media and training skills to the project can continue long after their return to the UK.
