Rotarians have helped a teenager with a donation towards a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Fourteen-year-old Lauren Greengrass, of King’s Lynn, is fundraising for a trip to British Columbia in July.

The teenager, who is a member of the Senior Section of the 9th King’s Lynn Guide Unit, has been selected for an international project in Canada which will help to support the environment and eco-system.

One of the conditions of taking part is to raise £2,000 to fund her costs.

Members of Lynn’s Trinity Rotary Club heard Lauren had already started fundraising for the trip, baking and organising sales.

Rotarians have donated £200 towards the trip which was handed over by club president Bob Foster.

He said: “The club congratulates Lauren on being selected for this amazing trip and we are delighted to contribute to her fundraising effort.

“We think she will be a great ambassador for Guiding.”

The Springwood High School pupil, who will be camping in the Rockies national park, applied for a place on the project and was interviewed by the international advisor for Girlguiding in Norfolk.

She then took part in a special selection weekend in London at a Guiding centre where she had to complete several challenges around the city which tested her teamwork skills and her ability to complete set tasks.

Lauren will represent Girlguiding Anglia on the trip.

The Senior Section of the unit she attends meets on Thursday evenings at St Faith’s Church Rooms in Gaywood.
