Girlguiding Rosewell are a fantastic bunch of enthusiastic girls, aged 5 to 14, who love being creative, earning badges and exploring our great outdoors!
We have an AMAZING team of volunteer leaders, or Owls as we are known to the girls, who spend hours of their time each week planning, organising and leading activities such as crafts, games, woodland trails, life skills, and residential adventures. Our units are ever growing thanks to the hard work of our Leaders and local community who are so supportive.
In the past few months, the way we Guide has changed significantly due to COVID-19 restrictions. However our fantastic Leaders continue to push on and ensure our girls get the most out of their Guiding Journey. Since entering lock down we have continued to Guide virtually which has allowed our girls to complete many badges and earn Bronze and Gold awards. We are now looking at how we can start to return to outdoor face-to-face Guiding and eventually face-to-face indoor Guiding but to be able to do this we need new equipment.
We are looking to invest in new outdoor equipment including a Gazebo, gas stoves and tables. We are also looking to invest in unit tablets which can be used by girls who need to continue to Guide virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. Guiding is not just an hour a week; it is a way of life! We are helping to shape and grow the next generation of empowered women who we know will go on to achieve great things!
If you feel able to offer us any support, we would be so grateful for any donations you are able to make to help us to continue to support our girls through this strange time.
