Get your hands on Layla's Advent Adventure! This brilliant resource offers an alternative to the 'naughty' elf on the shelf concept as you countdown to Christmas and is suitable for children both in and out of Girls’ Brigade.
But don’t just take our word for it, this is what Author and Speaker Rachel Gardner, mum of two, President of Girls’ Brigade England & Wales and Director of National Work at Youthscape, says ‘The Christmas story is one of adventure, mystery and hope. For all that I love the range of advent calendars, our children are missing out if all they get each day is a unicorn or superhero shaped chocolate that has nothing to do with the miracle of God drawing closer to us than we could ever dream possible. I’d love you to buy at least 2 copies of Layla’s Advent Adventure - one for you to use with children you know, and one for a family you’d love to introduce to the best gift the world has ever received!’
Available from www.girlsbrigadetrading.com; the resource is free with every Layla the Lamb toy purchased (Code: GBG27661, £11.95) or can be bought separately for just £1 (Code: GBG00152).

This year, Girls’ Brigade England & Wales has become an official partner with UK Parliament Week, which means we’re producing our own special UK Parliament Week booklet and badge.
This week (1-7 June 2019) we've been celebrating Volunteers' Week 2019 by giving thanks for our volunteers and all that they do week in and week out for the children and young people in their GB group(s).
