World Thinking Day 22nd February is a special day in the Girlguiding and Trefoil calendar when the 10 million girls in 150 countries celebrate the movement, especially the international dimension.

Trefoil Renfrewshire celebrated with a buffet lunch and the presentation of Voyage Awards to three members.

The Voyage Award is for all Trefoil members and starts at Bronze and goes through Silver to Gold. At each level the same five themes Service, Myself, Teamwork, Skills and Explore my World are worked on for an increasing number of hours at each level. 

It is up to each member to select their own challenge for each theme and discuss it with a mentor.d8993f6c 0a99 4da1 8a1a acf667fbf87b
