Find out more on the Reconciliation Council's website.

Volunteer Week 2020

Volunteering is the backbone of Girl Guiding, from the parents who volunteer at the local fundraisers to the Leaders who definitely volunteer more than 2 hours a week.
Our volunteers have gone above and beyond, making the most of what has been a crazy few months and ensuring that our Guides continue to have fun.
Make sure you thank the leaders, managers and helpers for all the amazing work they do. There wouldn't be Guiding without them!
