Global Round-up

Thursday 13th August 2020

A snapshot of what is going on in BB and Global Fellowship member organisations around the globe:

SAVE YOUR SUMMER SERIES

Brigade Neenah (Wisconsin, USA) provided a series of small group activities, fun outdoor excursions and Brigade workshops over the summer period. Titled “Save Your Summer Series”, the activities were open to all young people aged 10 to 18.

2ND PATHUM THANI CLEANING IN THE COMMUNITY

Members of 2nd Pathum Thani in Thailand served their community by cleaning the Sathaporn Estate and Rangsit Canal. They cleared litter and disinfected the playground to prevent the breeding of Aedes mosquitoes and to combat the spread of COVID-19.

FACE MASKS FOR HEALTH WORKERS

Jack, a member of 1st Rangiora in New Zealand, contributed to the local community during the country’s lockdown by using his 3D printer to make face masks for health workers. People were able to place their orders online, which were made and sanitized by Jack and then delivered by his parents.

#BBATHOME AROUND THE WORLD

It has been great to see #BBatHOME activities being used in other countries, bringing the BB adventure to members around the world. The photo shows Elijah of 3rd Pine Rivers (Queensland, Australia) completing the “Climb Big Ben” activity with his grandfather.

52 YEARS OF 1ST SIBU

After three months of lockdown, leaders of 1st Sibu in Malaysia were able to get together to have a simple celebration of the Company’s 52nd birthday.

NEW NAME IN FINLAND

Nuori Kirkko ry, a Finnish member organisation of European Fellowship, has recently undergone a rebrand. It is now known as Lasten ja nuorten keskus ry, which translates as “children and youth centre association” (official international name to be published later). Executive Director Sami Ojala commented: “Our new name highlights what is central to our work. Our organisation exists to support the holistic growth and good life of children and young people.”
