Appeal for volunteers

Share this article

A BORDERS Girlguiding leader has backed a campaign by her organisation to recruit more adult volunteers.

Gail Fox, county commissioner for Girlguiding Tweed Valley, told TheSouthern: “Units do have waiting lists and some girls are unable to join Rainbows, Brownies or Guides as we simply do not have enough adult volunteers.

“Girlguiding Tweed Valley needs volunteers to support local groups to allow girls and young women to participate in a wide range of exciting activities, as well as acquire new skills and experiences.

“These opportunities are also available to volunteers, as we learn new skills and have the opportunity to take part in many exciting activities.

“Guiding is flexible and we can offer opportunities to get involved directly with units or in other roles such as treasury, public relations and occasional helpers.”
