VOLUNTEERS’ Week is June 1-7 and what better time to celebrate our brilliant volunteers.

Here in Northwich we have hundreds of incredible volunteers in Scouting. We have volunteers from all backgrounds and they often give their time on a flexible basis, supporting us around work and family commitments.

I want to say a huge thank you to each and every one – you are helping young people look to the future with optimism giving them the practical, character and employability skills they need to succeed. But nationwide, we still have 50,000 young people waiting to join, so we need your help.

As a Scout Ambassador I know the benefits of volunteering first hand. Giving a little time and enthusiasm for something you believe in not only supports your community but makes you feel great too.
