90-year-old Sanderstead Brownies in appeal for volunteers

The 3rd Sanderstead Brownies is 90 years old this year. But they could close unless enough volunteers step forward to help run the group.

According to the local Guides’ leadership, “The current Owl leaders are happy to come and assist and any new helpers or leaders will get training and support.

“Whether leading the unit, or helping out more casually, you’ll run activities, games, projects and events that give girls the opportunity to discover their potential and the world around them. You’ll be supported to complete our Leadership Qualification, with training on everything from planning your programme to child safety.

“There are many units. Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section units that are on the verge of closing or have closed due to lack of volunteers. You can make a difference.”

And the volunteers don’t have to step forward to take on too much responsibility. “If you are not able to volunteer on a regular basis you can still make an impact in a supporting role. No commitment is too small – every role is vital to running our charity.

“You don’t need to have been involved in Girlguiding before to make a big difference and find a role that is perfect for you.”

3rd Sanderstead Brownies meet each week at:

Sanderstead United Reformed Church
3 Sanderstead Hill
