A GUIDE leader is getting ready to represent the county at an international event in Mexico.
Rebecca Briddon, 18, has raised £1,800 for her trip in August.
She will be staying at Our Cabana, one of the World Centres for Girl Guides, as part of a Guiding UK event.
The event will mark Girl Guiding Friendship week and will include many cultural activities and workshops.
Guides will be able to use traditional Mexican crafts and try making some for themselves.
The trip will also include working with street children.
Rebecca has been chosen to represent Derbyshire at the event.
To help raise funds for the trip Rainbow Guides did a sponsored walk at Matlock Green.
Rebecca said: “It went really well.
“They are only little but they wanted to do something to help.”
She added: “I’m looking forward to going. I will be meeting and working with Guides from all over the world.”
