Welcome to 1st South Walsham Guides

Cupcake Challenge is back – with Extra Toppings!


The new Cupcake Challenge Badge, complete with Girlguiding UK trefoil

Our Cupcake Challenge badge is on sale again after a redesign that has put the Girlguiding UK trefoil  at its heart.

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 completed 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.

Now we’re going for a new look and have added some new activities, or Extra Toppings, for 2017.

You helped us 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.

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

Thank you
