Jemma Kemp from Poringland received the award from Baroness Floella Benjamin and chief guide Gill Slocombe at a ceremony at the House of Lords last week.

Recipients must demonstrate personal skills, work in community action projects, and oversee outdoor pursuits.

The 22-year-old’s achievements included attending the Gig in a Field guiding festival and Minivate Girlguiding Anglia’s forum for young women.

She said: “Guiding has always been a big part of my life and has changed and shaped it in many ways. It has given me opportunities that I never would have dared to experience, from trying abseiling on guide camp to being a part of the Centenary Camp with hundreds of other guides and guiders from around the world.”
