Girls are miss­ing out

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

TENS of thou­sands of young­sters are wait­ing to join the Brown­ies and Guides due to a lack of vol­un­teers.

About 70,000 girls and young women are miss­ing out on the chance to make friends, have ad­ven­tures and im­prove skills such as con­fi­dence be­cause of a short­age of peo­ple will­ing to give their time, Girl­guid­ing said.

The char­ity has launched a new na­tional #KnowYourPlace cam­paign urg­ing the pub­lic to sign up and join in, with the mes­sage that a woman’s place is “wher­ever she wants it to be”.
