Celebrating our 140th Anniversary

During the 2021/22 session we hope that leaders, parents/carers, young people, supporters, partner organisations – anyone who knows and understands what we do and the value of it – will give their visual support and endorsement of the BB via social media, and challenge others to be #OpenToBB.

How it works

  • We are asking you to share our image (BB or BB/GA version) on your own social media pages – either just the image, or preferably a picture of you with the image (printed or displayed on another device/screen).  
  • Along with the image/picture we are suggesting you complete this sentence as the post to accompany the image – “I’m #OpenToBB because…” (for example, if you are a leader it might be something like “I’m #OpenToBB because as a leader in [village/town/city] I’ve seen for myself the difference we make to young people’s lives over the last [x] years”).
  • Please use the following hashtags in your posts: #BoysBrigade #OpenToBB #LifeToTheFull
  • It would be great to see as many leaders getting involved in this, but why not also ask some of your members, parents/carers, Chaplain, friends and supporters within your local community to also get involved and show their support as well.
