She then had to go on an adventure which was a Harry Potter murder mystery weekend.

The award was presented during a special evening where the Guides went tenpin bowling at Alley-Catz Bowling Lanes in Spalding before enjoying fish and chips at Sheddies.

The Guides also enjoyed a visit from three members of the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People ) plus two guide dogs called Ozzy and Nana.

Sheila’s dog Nana is 11-years-old and is now retired. Ozzy is still a working dog and Denis demonstrated how he helps him to get around.

A cheque for £50 was presented to the RNIB by the Guides, who have also completed the Sight Awareness Challenge Badge.
