Girl Explorer, Aaliyah Ismail, was awarded the prestigious Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award. The scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which recognises and celebrates the achievements of Young People. Aaliyah was awarded the prize in recognition of her hard work and contribution to the community.
Girl Explorers helped to organise important parts of this Event. Both of the charities selected were those that were nominated by the Girls. They were the first point of contacts from the Group for the charities and liaised with them closely to book speakers and arrange goody bags. They also prepared their t-shirts in advance. For the first time, they pre-planned and navigated their own route (including a risk assessment) and used public transport to walk to various Mosques in London. They travelled to East London Mosque, Central Mosque and were the only section to make it to North London and West London Mosques! They truly got into the spirit of the Walk with 100% turnout – all 10 girls compared to their Boy Explorer Counterparts where only 3 out of 7 attended the Event. Well done girls!!!
Our Girl Explorers busy this year preparing for our Annual Sponsored Walk. Not only did they research, nominate and present Charities to be selected for the Walk to our whole Group, they spent time preparing for the Walk itself. They liaised with the Charities inviting them to speak to the Group and prepared goody bags for each participant. They even had time to tie dye their own t-shirts especially for the Event!
