Celebrating our leaders: Harry’s story

Friday 28th October 2022

The Boys’ Brigade has over 10,000 volunteer leaders across the country who support children and young people to learn, grow and discover. Over the course of 2022 we are sharing some of their stories each month as we celebrate our amazing leaders.

Meet Harry

Harry Lamond volunteers in the Juniors age group at 268th Glasgow, and has helped at various events including the Kilbryde Hike.

Why did you become a BB leader? 

I chose to become a leader to help children and young people have fun and meet new friends, whilst learning new skills that will stay with them throughout their lives.

What is your highlight of your time in BB so far? 

I have many highlights, the main one being when I was presented with my Queen’s Badge in front of so many dignitaries and my proud family.

This year one of my highlights was Cumbrae Camp, where I developed my skills as a young leader by assisting with games and other activities. Also, I was able to attend the recent Young Leaders Weekend in Yorkshire, which I found to be very informative and fun. As part of it I attended workshops, improved my team building skills and had the opportunity to take part in activities that I had never tried before.

What do you do when not at BB?

I like to go running, cycling, and hiking. I also work full-time in a care home, and I am doing a college course in health and social care.

How would you describe the BB in three words?

Fun, friendly and sociable.
