Girlguiding moved online during the pandemic

County Commissioner, Louise Lightbody said: “Volunteers’ Week is a chance to celebrate and recognise the fantastic contribution our volunteers make.

“Thanks to them over 1000 girls throughout East Renfrewshire benefit from the fun, friendship and adventure Girlguiding has to offer.

“During the pandemic, our fantastic volunteers have organised online activities to bring guiding straight to the girls’ living rooms. It’s been great to be able to keep units meeting as much as possible in these challenging times.

“We also pay tribute to those volunteers who are also key workers and perhaps haven’t been able to run their units due to their job on the frontline. We thank them for everything they are doing.”

As guiding groups adapt to the new coronavirus restrictions, the charity’s volunteers are committed to deliver guiding in new and innovative ways so that they can continue to keep connected and empower girls and young women.

Gilrguiding East Renfrewshire is currently looking for support from local heroes to make a meaningful impact in the lives of girls and young women to help them to grow their

confidence, develop their voice and have fun and adventure.

Anyone can get involved in guiding, whether or not they’ve previously been a member, and with a variety of volunteer roles to choose from people can give the time that suits them.
