What is the Challenge? 

Discover our amazing county, learn new facts and spread the word about Girlguiding Derbyshire


What is the Challenge? 

As Michelle, Jo and Izzy look at their next challenges in Girlguiding, you can too. Whether that's a volunteer taking on a new role or a young member moving on to the next section.


What is the Challenge? 

Just as it says, lets Celebrate! This can be used for any occasion or special event.

CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE - (Badges now sold out)

What is the Challenge? 

'Our challenge to you is to organise an ‘event’ to bring us all together during the weekend of 10th – 12th December. This can be held in units, districts, areas, with local or connected units or Trefoil Guilds. It can be virtual or your girls could take part as individuals, if your situation requires this. Check out the activity ideas pages to get your imagination going'.

Make sure that you share what you have done to inspire someone else.


What is the Challenge? 

'Show a way you have engaged with science, technology, engineering and maths' 

Make sure that you share what you have done to inspire someone else.

                                                                 OUTDOOR CHALLENGE

What is the Challenge?

'Enjoy being outdoors with your unit'

You could perhaps learn a new skill, take part in a new activity or adapt an indoor activity to work outdoors.


What is the Challenge? 

Record any positive experiences you have had during Lockdown on any visual medium.  This could be a vlog, blog, photo, video, drawing, collage… whatever you want to do. 

As we start to return to face to face meetings it’s a great time to reflect on the positive experiences we have had during the lockdown.  Whether that is an increased awareness of nature, discovering your local area, having time to re connect with friends, a good old sort out at home, a charitable venture, more family time, learning new skills such as using Zoom or anything else that you may not either have had chance to do or was an unexpected positive from this unusual time. 

What will we do to help? 

We will post links, tips and videos to our social media pages.

Once you have completed your challenge, please share your visual art on our social media channels and you can apply for your badge. 


What is the Challenge? 

As part of the CC Team Challenge, we're bringing you the Environmental Champion Challenge.

Show that you have done something that will have a positive impact on the environment. It can be something local to you,

in your own home or global.

You can do it as an individual, with your Unit, District or Area.


What is the Challenge? 

As part of the CC Team Challenge, we're bringing you Social Action Week, where you can help your local community in any way you wish. The focus week is w/c 11th October, but it can be done anytime and we have come up with some ideas if you need some inspiration!

Donate to your local Food Bank - Make food parcels to send or contact them to see how else your unit can help via The Trussell Trust website. Have a discussion in your unit about useful items that could go in a food parcel.

Community Poo Bags/Carrier Bags - Using a large plastic bottle, make a holder to store carrier bags/poo bags and display it in your area. Why not advertise your unit on them? Keep them stocked or remove them once they've been used. If you’re unsure on how to make one, have a look on Poo bag dispenser video or the ‘Instructables’ website.

Support local care homes - Contact your local care home and ask for a list of residents for members of your unit to write too. If you have Rainbows/Brownies, they could also draw pictures! You could also ask if there’s any other ways you can be of assistance!

Whatever you choose to do, don’t forget to share it on local Girlguiding social media and in local news outlets or let your Area Growth and Social Media Reps know (ask your DC's if you're not sure who these are)!

If you have any questions, or would like to get in touch with us, please email

What will we do to help? 

Here are some inspiring ideas. 




Hi I’m Ellie, a member of Etwall Rangers, 1st Derbyshire virtual rangers and a YL with 1st Etwall Brownies. I have run mug cake sessions on zoom for my units and would like to do them for the challenge too.








Mug Cake Ingredients

4 tablespoons plain flour (or Gluten free)

2 tablespoons of sugar

1/2 tablespoon of baking powder

optional handful of chocolate chips, sprinkles or a teaspoon of cocoa powder/hot chocolate powder if they want to add extra flavour etc.

4 tablespoons of milk (plant based works fine too)

1 1/2 tablespoons of flavourless oil (eg vegetable oil) 




Hi my name is Rebecca Wing and I’m fourteen years old.  During lockdown I have enjoyed taking part in 1st Somercotes Guides and 1st Derbyshire Virtual Rangers zoom sessions.  I was really sad when I heard that Peak was cancelled but I enjoyed the Peak Lockdown challenge and joining in with the  campover.   I really enjoy cooking at home and at school.  At home I cook tea most days and at school I am taking GCSE catering.  For my demo video I have decided to make scotch eggs, here are the ingredients if you would like to have a go.




Scotch Egg Ingredients

5 large eggs

300g good quality pork sausagemeat

1 tsp black peppercorns, crushed

1/40g cooked ham, shredded

25g sage, apple and onion stuffing mix

1 tsp chopped sage

1 tsp chopped parsley

100g plain flour, seasoned, plus extra for dusting

100g dried breadcrumbs (preferably paxo)

Sunflower oil, for frying





Hello, my name is Harriet and I am the District Commissioner for Mickleover, where I am also a leader for 3rd Mickleover Rainbows.   I love to cook but often there is too much leftover, so mug baking is perfect as you get one pot portions and don’t have to share!








Pizza in a mug Ingredients

3 tablespoons plain flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda (or baking powder)

Pinch of salt

2 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon tomato purée 

A splash of water 

1 - 2 tablespoons of grated cheese (depending how cheesey you like it)

Plus a small amount of topping (optional) , for example, pinch of chilli flakes, oregano, small pieces of ham + pineapple etc

A microwaveable mug and a small bowl to mix the purée in and fork to mix 



DRIP CAKE MASTERCLASS WITH LOUISA                                   

The ingredients will vary depending on the size of your tins, this recipe is for a cake made in 2 eight inch tins.        


Essential kit

2 eight inch tins

Greaseproof paper


Spatula/ wooden spoon

Hand mixer/ stand mixer (a wooden spoon or spatula will work as well if you don’t have either)

Flat plate or cake board

For the sponges

275g (10oz) butter, softened (I use half butter and half Stork baking block) plus extra for greasing

275g (10oz) sugar

275g (10oz) self-raising flour

If making chocolate: 50g (2oz) cocoa powder (I use half cocoa powder and half hot chocolate powder)

5 eggs


For the buttercream

250g (9oz) butter, softened

500g (18oz) icing sugar


If making chocolate: Melted chocolate


For the decoration

100g (4oz) chocolate

Half to 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil (add it in a bit at a time, you want your chocolate to be slightly runnier than normal melted chocolate but too much will make it too thin and it’ll run down the cake too much)

Chocolates/ sweets of your choice


Once you have prepared your meal for someone else, please share your pictures on our social media channels and you can apply for your badge.
