To kick off our series about Scouts volunteers and the work they do in the Stratford-upon-Avon district, I had a chat with one of our more recent recruits: Bryan joined the Scouts as a Section Assistant in 2019 and his experience shows volunteering is fun and #goodforyou in so many ways.
How did you hear about volunteering for the Scouts?
I think I mentioned to my wife ‘oh I need to start doing something’ (other than work) and she’d spotted there was a scouting recruitment drive at the Stratford Town Hall in 2019. I’d never volunteered for anything before but I just thought I’d get out of my comfort zone and try something new. And this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
What do you do with the Scouts?
I’m a Section Assistant. I chose this originally as I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into, but this role suits me down to the ground. I’m very happy to turn up in all kinds of weather…go camping…it’s fantastic.
