GIRLS in Atherton and Tyldesley are looking for new adult volunteers to help run their Rainbow, Brownie and Guide groups.

The groups, which are run by some of Girlguiding’s 100,000 dedicated volunteers, are looking for new enthusiastic adult volunteers to help keep them running and to allow more girls to join.

They are open to all girls, aged between five and 25, who want to make new friends, learn new things – and have lots of fun doing it.

Seven-year-old Mia Pritchard said: “Being a Brownie is exciting and amazing.

“We have just been on a pack holiday and I have been abseiling and done archery.

“We do lots of crafts and learn new skills like cooking and sewing.

“I absolutely love Brownies.”

The girls and their leaders are looking for new volunteers to start in September.

Ruth Kerfoot, division commissioner of Atherton and Tyldesley, said: “The girls throw themselves at every challenge that comes their way – every week they want to try something new.

“This is made possible by our fantastic volunteers and we are looking for more people interested in getting involved.”

Rebecca Haynes, a development worker who is working with the groups in the area, added: “The area needs new people to join the existing volunteers to keep these groups running and to allow more girls the chance to join such an exciting organisation.”
