Volunteers’ Week 2024

Volunteers’ Week 2024

This year, Monday 3rd June – Sunday 9th June marks National Volunteers’ Week.

As a county commissioner team we wanted to say a huge thank you for all that you do for Girlguiding Lancashire South East. Whether that be as a young leader, leader, unit helper, commissioner, adviser and any other Girlguiding role. THANK YOU! ⭐

Following the success of last year’s “Thank You” badges that were distributed across the county, we thought we’d hand the reigns over to you as our volunteers to nominate someone you think deserves a spotlight🔦

We’ll be sharing your nominations in our Facebook group throughout the week (and below)! ⭐
