The very first Guide & Scout unit at Leeds Children’s Hospital will open in December 2016.
The new unit will meet weekly, all year round, at the Clarendon Wing of Leeds General Infirmary and will be open to any patients aged 5 – 16 years old from any of the Leeds wards, and their siblings.
Laura Stubbs will Captain the unit, with a team of regular volunteers being recruited from Guides and Scouts to help make sure as many young people can join in as possible.
Laura, who has been a leader in Girlguiding for ten years, says “I can’t wait to get the unit off the ground, and all the help from LGI, Scouts and Girlguiding Leeds has been fantastic. We’re just finalising the details before we start meeting up each week, and we are still looking for rota volunteers. If you can give a couple of hours each month to help us, please get in touch.”
Anyone interested in volunteering at the unit can get more information here. We’ll release more news as and when it happens…
