Partnering with Tash from The Swish, we’re excited to be launching a brand-new annual fashion upcycling challenge pack, coinciding with Global Recycling Day on 18 March 2024.
Over the spring term, Girlguiding units complete creative challenges that educate them around sustainable fashion, and inspire them to start thrifting, upcycling and making their own clothes. Every challenge puts a spotlight on sustainability and are based around 5 themes of re-styling, re-working, re-gifting, researching, and discovering your unique style. The challenge will conclude with a fun catwalk session which we ask you to complete as close as you can to Global Recycling Day on 18 March 2024.
We are delighted to launch our unit transition resource, designed by a group of Queen's Guides candidates from around the South West region. They have created a girl-led resource to support young members as they move up through Guiding, with activities to help them reflect on their past, present and future as a Girlguiding member.
There is a central badge design which can then be added to as girls move through the sections. We hope the new resource will help to record memories of their time in their current unit, whilst looking forward to the next section up and all the exciting things still to come!
easyfundraising – free funds for Girlguiding units
Offering an easy, accessible, and continual way to raise free funds, easyfundraising gives units the chance to fundraise effortlessly through online shopping.
Finances should never be a barrier for a volunteer or young member to take part in Girlguiding, which is why we have created this grant scheme to support members.
Thanks to a generous grant from Girlguiding we are able to offer a new Cost of Living Support grant. Our Cost-of-Living Support Grant is available to Division/District/Units to help subsidise adult volunteers and young members guiding costs, in particular to help pay subscriptions for 2024.
