Brownies & Guides – need adult volunteers

We are in real need of adult help for our successful Rainbow, Brownie, Guide and Rangers in the Lewisham and Lee area.

We are looking for adult volunteers who can commit to helping to run our units.  We have units that are looking for more adults to join their leadership team and others where if we don’t find new adults soon, we will have to close the unit at the end of the summer term in 2019.

We run units that build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations by giving them the opportunity to discover their potential and interests through a wide and varied programme that is fun and safe.  We have Units for girls aged 5-19 years of age (Rainbows for girls aged 5 and 6, Brownies for 7-10 year old girls, Guides for 10-14 year old girls and Rangers for those girls aged 14-18).  Girl guiding has recently launched a new programme which all our units are starting to implement.  There are plenty of resources and materials available to help adults plan and run the weekly meetings and to arrange other activities.  We also have a friendly and helpful leadership team in our area so there is always help and advice on hand as you start to volunteer with Girl Guiding.

Enthusiasm for guiding in our area continues to increase and we have many girls on our waiting lists whom we would like to accept into our units; but we are restricted by the number of adult volunteers that we have.  If you feel that you might be able to volunteer some of your time to help keep guiding alive in our area or know someone who might like to help please get in touch with Sandra or Jane by emailing or calling Sandra on 07742 024833.
