Awards presented at Civic Reception

Group of Girlguiding volunteers with Depute Lord Provost

Girlguiding Dundee volunteers were recognised at a Civic Reception held in their honour recently, as they held their awards evening at the City Chambers.


Long service awards were presented to those who have volunteered for five, ten and twenty years, amounting to over 80 years of service.


Badges and certificates were presented to leaders who have qualified to lead residential events and to those who are now fully trained leaders. Also recognised were two young women under 18, who have worked hard to gain their Lead Away qualification too.


Girlguiding has over 1,000 members in and around the city, with young members starting from age 4 as Rainbows. Brownies are aged 7-10, Guides, 10-14, Rangers 14-18, and adult volunteers are aged 18 upwards. Members of Trefoil Guild are also aged 18 upwards, who meet together for fun and friendship as well as supporting Girlguiding activities. Two of their members celebrate their 90th birthdays this year.


County Commissioner, Amy Knighton said “Girlguiding is about showing girls and young women a world of possibilities big and small. One where everyone can laugh and learn and be herself. We can’t do any of that without our volunteers, and this event is about celebrating them and recognising their hard work.”


Depute Lord Provost of Dundee Kevin Cordell said: “Girlguiding Dundee, and their volunteers, have a profoundly positive impact on the city. With their outdoor activities, skills development and community service going far in instilling confidence, resilience and a sense of purpose in the young people in Dundee who take part. It’s only right that these long serving adult members of Girlguiding Dundee are recognised for the great work they carry out across the city.”
