Show your support this #GivingTuesday!

Monday 28th November 2016

For ‘Giving Tuesday’, The Boys’ Brigade is calling on communities to ‘show your support’ for the local BB companies and to help the organisation make even more of a difference in young people’s lives.

There are many ways you can get involved – you could enquire about volunteering opportunities; make a donation; or even just saying ‘thank you’ in person or on social media.

The Boys’ Brigade works with around 20,000 young people in over 400 communities in Scotland on a weekly basis. Our priority is to provide support in a safe and fun learning environment, giving young people with the best start in life.

Commenting on the Giving Tuesday, Bill Stevenson, The Boys’ Brigade CEO, said:

“In many places, the local BB company plays a really important and active role in the community.  Fundraising, inter-generational work and providing a safe place for young people are just some examples of what happens each week.

“As we approach the very special time of year, we are asking people to take a moment and ‘show your support’ for the efforts of their local BB volunteers and young people.”

Giving Tuesday  is a worldwide campaign calling on people to do something good for charity following on from Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

You can also show your support online.  Post your message on Twitter to @TheBBscotland using #boysbrigade and #givingtuesday .
