Finance Adviser

Ruth Bowles

If you cut me in half I am sure I would be like a stick of rock and say ‘Girlguiding Bucks’.  I started as a Brownie when I was 7 years old and have never left!  I have held many appointments at District, Division and County level, but am never happier than when I am in a field camping with my guides and cooking over a wood fire.

My working background has allowed me to gain banking and financial knowledge which I have been able to put to practical application within Guiding. Sharing the skills and experience I have  is part of my role within my unit, and also within my role as a trustee. I see my  responsibility as helping to support the continued viability and success of our fantastic County.
