Welcome to 1st South Walsham Guides

Cupcake Challenge Badge – available NOW!


The new Cupcake Challenge Badge, complete with Girlguiding UK trefoil

Sales of our new look Cupcake Challenge badge have gone so well since its redesign in 2017, that we have had to order more stock to keep up with demand.

But the good news is that badges are available now – from April 2018. 

The new design has the Girlguiding UK trefoil  at its heart and the badge details include some new activities, or Extra Toppings, to try out.

Our first badge project, from 2011-13, resulted in a huge response from more than 1200 groups in the UK and across the world who all took up the challenge and got the badge.

Our original Cupcake Challenge badge, bought by Guides and Girl Scouts right across the globe

We sent badges to Australia, New Zealand, the USA and the Middle East as well as all corners of the UK.

We relaunched the badge in 2015 and sold to another 230 units.

Since our 2017 relaunch, we’ve sold badges to another 230 groups and this has helped to raise money for two trips to Switzerland, in 2012 and 2016, and for our stay at Norjam, the international jamboree in Norfolk in 2014.

We’re off to Norjam 2018 this year, and  all proceeds will help to take our Guides to that amazing jamboree.

The updated Cupcake Challenge Badge, with Extra Toppings and badge order form, is now on the website – visit our Cupcake Challenge page to download it now.

Thank you
