Girlguiding Fife, the leading charity for girls and young women, is actively seeking volunteers who can support online guiding and a return to face to face guiding in the longer term.

As guiding groups adapt to the new Coronavirus restrictions, the charity’s volunteers are committed to deliver guiding in new and innovative ways so that they can continue to keep connected and empower girls and young women. Many groups continue to meet online, following a move to virtual guiding after face-to-face meetings were suspended during lockdown.

Determined to carry on guiding during this challenging time, guiding groups such as the Crossford Rainbows have continued to stay connected through zoom. As well as playing lots of games and crafting, they have been doing their bit for the planet by setting up their own recycling centres and have had fun by dressing up as superheroes and building dens. They’ve also been working hard to earn their badges at home and are looking forward to meeting outside at their allotment soon.

Isla, a member of the 1st Crossford Rainbows, age 6, said: “I love Rainbows because I like seeing all my friends and it's so much fun. I like doing all the interesting tasks we need to do to get my badges. I've really enjoyed the Zoom Rainbows on the computer because we've been able to dress up and we've made mug cakes and had a pizza party, and we've even done crafts!”

Girlguiding Scotland, which provides opportunities for girls to develop life skills and have adventure, is the leading charity for girls and young women in Scotland with 45,000 members. For over 100 years guiding has made many positive differences in communities right across Scotland.
