A RAINBOWS group in Woking will close if a replacement cannot be found for their departing leader.
Woking Town District Rainbows, the only such group in the borough, are looking for any volunteers over the age of 18 who would be interested in helping in any way possible: be it at their weekly meetings or by dealing with some of the administration duties behind the scenes.
Volunteers will be offered relevant training along with the chance to gain a first-aid certificate.
Woking Town District Commissioner, Kate Spencer-Jones, who says the group have until Christmas to identify a permanent new leader, said: “Girlguiding offers a balanced programme for all types of girls aged from five to 14, tailored to the section they are in.
“Anyone who joins to help will of course receive the support of the leaders of the group they’re volunteering for, but also at a local level and, going further along up the chain, spreading out across the county of Surrey.
“Volunteering with Girlguiding would provide excellent hands-on experience to any young person who is working towards a child-based qualification, and will undoubtedly help them with their future careers.
“It can also be counted towards the service section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award, or if you’re within the relevant age band you can even work towards the Duke of Edinburgh Award through Girlguiding. It would also be an excellent time-filler for any person who has a few hours to kill each week by lending the organisation their own particular skills and seeing something come out of them.”
