132 years and counting…. Happy Birthday!!!

Sunday 4th October 2015

Today, The Boys’ Brigade celebrates its 132nd year, since William Alexander Smith founded the first BB Company in Glasgow, Scotland in 1883. The organisation is now spread across the globe in over 50 countries reaching over 1 million children and young people. Today, in the UK & Republic of Ireland we partner with 1432 churches, reaching out into the local community to engage with more than 48,000 children and young people every week.

132 years and counting… our work goes on to make a difference in our communities and to the lives of the children and young people who we engage with… we have Faith in Young people!
