“Every child has the right to an adventure. Life is about grabbing opportunities. The prizes don’t always go to the biggest, the best and the strongest – they go to those who persevere. These are simple life lessons that Scouting teaches.”

16th Lancaster Scout Group want to let you know about the brilliant volunteering opportunities we have. And every one of them is good for you.
We rely on people like you playing their part to give young people opportunities to dream big, give it a go, and build skills for life. You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer. We’re looking for people to help out in all sorts of ways in our meeting place at Dorrington Road and behind the scenes.
At the moment, we’d especially love some help in setting up a new Beaver Colony on a Thursday 5.45-6.45pm. We need enthusiastic adults who enjoy interacting with young people, have plenty of energy and enjoy playing games, who are patient and caring and good at organizing activities. You can help regularly or on a flexible basis and it’s a great opportunity to learn new skills, gain recognised qualifications, make new friends, and have as much fun as the Beavers. If you can get involved, call Mandy Seddon (Beaver Scout Leader) on 07815 806077 or email email@example.com.
The following sections meet at 16th Lancaster. If you would prefer to be involved with any of these, please get in touch.
Beaver Scouts (6-8 years): Wednesday 5.45-7pm
Proposed New Beaver Scouts: Thursday 5.45-6.45pm
Rowallan Cub Scouts (8-10 years): Tuesday 6-7.30pm
Maclean Cub Scouts (8-10 years): Thursday 7-8.30pm
Scouts (10-14 years): Friday 7-9pm
All our sections need active support from parents and other adults, in a variety of roles. Whether you want to work directly with young people or if you’re more comfortable planning an adventure from the sidelines, we’ve got a role for you. Talk to us and we’ll help you find something that matches your skills (and the time you have available).
Here are some examples of the jobs that need doing without working directly with Young People:
- Our Rowallan Cub pack is in need of a treasurer to keep a record of income and expenditure during the year and provide accounts to the Group treasurer at the end of the year.
- Our executive committee needs adults who can provide support to the Group by organizing fund raising events and helping to look after our scout hut.
Scouting happens when a lot of us give a little. You’re not signing up for a lifelong commitment – just to help out, when and where you can.
We’re making it easier for people to find out what Scouting is all about by running a four week challenge. It’s a chance to come along and see what we do before making any decisions, and meet other members of the team at 16th Lancaster. We don’t expect you to turn into a leader overnight: the four week challenge is all about getting involved in a way that works for you.
And volunteering’s a two-way street. Research shows that it improves your wellbeing and helps you build career-boosting skills. Let us know you’re interested, and we’ll give you any support and training you need to let your skills shine.
If you’ve got bright ideas or questions, please get in touch by calling 07539 068220 or emailing Daniella.firstname.lastname@example.org
