Adderbury Brownies needs Volunteers and Helpers

We are hoping to recruit new volunteers and helpers for the Adderbury Brownie Unit. We would love to hear from anyone who can offer some time in any way possible to help run our Brownie unit – whether that’s as a leader, an occasional helper or administration support. It’s a really fun way to help the community and keeps the lovely traditions of Girl Guiding alive. Young people who are looking for volunteer work and experience are welcome, people who were Girl Guides themselves many, many moons ago and just about everyone in between – no matter your experience or how much time you have to spare.  Nicky Hart AdderburyBrownies@gmail.com
