Girl Guides Celebrate 100 Years with 600+ Blue Kisses

Another 623 blue lip prints have been added to the UK tally by the girls in blue at a week long camp to celebrate 100 years of guiding.

PHA-UK member Kathy Davis, as Assistant County Commissioner, was key in organising the Guiding County Camp for Hampshire East numbering in excess of 700 campers, including some 80 international guides invited from Japan and the USA.  In addition to Puckering Up 4 PH, the guides took part in a host of activities including climbing, rafting, boating, archery, tent pitching competitions, Japanese dancing, craft from all over the world, global development village and much, much more. In the evenings there were discos, beach parties, talent competitions, line dancing and a live pop concert on Friday evening.

Jacqui Boldy’s PuckerUp4PH Banner made another appearance (email us at if you’d like to request it for a forthcoming event) and they also had BBC Radio Solent reporting live from the campsite throughout Friday afternoon.

Kathy says: “I got 623 blue lips and gave out lots of flyers and stickers. The response was excellent with many girls asking questions about PH. The adults were also very supportive and now have an understanding of the condition I have and why I need O2.”
