I belong....

There was a t-shirt produced by Girlguiding UK, on it it says I belong.... and then lists a load of amazing facts about the organisation, it talks about the brilliant things we do an says something like this...
Almost half of the women in Britain have been involved in guiding at some point in their lives
Around 30 per cent of eight-year-old girls are in Brownies
Seventy per cent of five- to seven-year-olds, 73 per cent of seven- to ten-year-olds, 81 per cent of ten to 15-year-olds and a massive 96 per cent of 16- to 25-year-olds like to spend time together without any boys being there

I've just got back from a week at camp where I have been reminded just how much this movement can do for girls from any walk of life, and how much pleasure I get from working with them. I've come away re-energised about my own unit and have made so many new friends. I arrived at camp a stranger, with in 6 hours I had made so many new friends.

I'm just trying to catch up after a week away, I have taken some photo, I'll put them up tomorrow.
