Make a difference with 38th Rossendale Scout Group
Have you ever made sandcastles in December?
This is where you come in. We need an extra pair of hands, eyes and even feet! We’d like you to help with craft activities, help to judge games and explain things when they don’t quite know the rules.
If you can give us one hour twice a month to help out at any Section it would make a vast difference to what activities the young people can do. You never know you might just get to the moon…
Are you a money maker extraordinaire?
We need you to help our fundraising team to stage fun and family friendly events and fundraising opportunities that can raise funds for our Group. Every penny we raise is used to support children, so whether it’s bingo or a barn dance the choice is yours!
Cub Leaders facilitate a wide range of activities which help develop a taste for adventure, a sense of community, an understanding of other people and an appreciation of nature, all leading to enhanced confidence, and to the Chief Scout’s Silver Award. Many of the required skills will come naturally to you, others can be learnt, but the support you need will always be there. A great part of helping Cubs is that you will introduce them to activities they have never tried before, quite possibly sparking a life-long interest.
Scout Leaders facilitate a wide range of adventurous activities leading to enhanced confidence and self-esteem, and to the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. No one individual is likely to have the complete set of skills required to run an effective Scout Troop. Teamwork is key, and all the support you need is there in abundance at District, County and National level. A great part of helping Scouts is seeing them develop into well-rounded teenagers and enjoying yourself the adventures that you provide for them.
They engage in a wide range of adventurous activities, often organised by themselves but supported by leaders. These activities boost self-development, confidence and esteem, and lead to the Chief Scout’s Diamond and Platinum awards and the Queen’s Scout Award, Scouting’s top prize. A great part of helping Explorer Scouts is supporting them in having a major role in conceiving, planning, running and evaluating all that they do.
