Gotham Scouts visited by MP on The Big Help Out celebration

1st Gotham Scout Group take part in The Big Help Out, to celebrate volunteers as part of HRH King Charles III’s Coronation and are now on the hunt for more adult volunteers to get involved.

Gotham Scouts has seen a boom in demand following the pandemic, as young people want to get back out into the world and develop skills for life, meet new people and have fun.

To celebrate the work of Gotham’s volunteers they were visited by Ruth Edwards MP for Rushcliffe as part of The Big Help Out, a National Day of Volunteering on Monday 8 May.

At present there are nearly 38,000 young people on waiting lists nationally, as more and more young people want to experience the adventure of Scouting.

1st Gotham specifically needs Scout Leaders for a new Monday night Scout Troop (age 10 1/2 – 14), and new volunteers to help us open the Scout’s newest section for 4 & 5 years olds on a Wednesday evening: Squirrels.

Ben Anderson, Cub Scout Leader said:

“Volunteering is the best thing I do with my week, giving back is really rewarding and makes me feel better.

“It could do the same for you. I don’t think you’ll regret it. Let me know if you’re interested.”

Local Scout Jessica said: “Please come and join Scouts to help us out and help us to have more fun! We don’t want to have to stop going to Scouts.”

Scouting is shaped by young people in partnership with adults and we are always looking for new volunteers if you fancy a go at 1st Gotham why not join the adventure at
