Abbie and friend in Mexico

Hi, I’m Abbie and Sue from Yetton Together has asked me to give a brief idea of what opportunities are available to young people in our area. I was a  member of the 119th Kirkheaton Guide Unit and I’m now a young leader at 26th Almondbury Parish Brownies and recently, I represented West Yorkshire South by attending an international expedition to Our Cabana, Mexico,one of the for guiding world centres,  where we took part in a community project to bring healthcare and education to local children. We visited tons of interesting places like the floating gardens, the valley of the dead and enough pyramids to put the Egyptians to shame. We also met other girl guides and scouts from all over the world, ranging from Canada to Bolivia, Rippon to Panama. All of this was made possible by the support I had from my local community, my guide unit and local businesses to who I am truly grateful as I will never forget my trip to Mexico, the friends I made or people I helped.
