Volunteers Week 2014
To All Officers, Helpers and supporters.
As Volunteers’ Week 2014 begins, I wanted to take this opportunity to say a personal thank you to each and every one of you for the time, passion and enthusiasm you give to CLCGB.
You play a vital role in supporting young people experience adventure and be a powerful force for good in the world. Thanks to you or members can experience exciting opportunities and achieve anything they want to.
In this very year, I have had the chance to meet so many of our volunteers and to see the fabulous work that they are doing all over the UK every week. Whether I’m presenting The Brigade Cross to a special individual, joining in as staff on camps (Yes washing up, cooking, cleaning) attending local meetings and events or delivering sessions at young leader training, I get to see first-hand just how dedicated and inspiring our volunteers really are.
Do you realise across the county volunteers from CLCGB give 45,227 hours every week to support their communities?
I hope you’ll continue to lead, support, develop and inspire members for many years to come. From me personally, CLCGB NHQ staff and Brigade Council, please accept our heartfelt thanks for all that you do.
Chief Executive Officer
