Celebrating our 140th Anniversary

In a world that’s more connected than ever, our leaders and young people across the country are doing fantastic work in using social media to share the joy, learning and community that The Boys’ Brigade offers.

Whether it’s a captivating photo or a short video that highlights how we’re helping young people to experience life to the full, or a post about how the group gets involved in the local community, there are lots of great examples out there of sharing the BB story.

To celebrate the creativity, dedication and hard work of our volunteer leaders and young people, we’re thrilled to announce The Boys’ Brigade Social Media Awards!
