A GB team leader has been presented with an award for her voluntary commitments, for the third year running, by her employer - the University of Gloucestershire.
Barbara Rainbow, from 1st Charlton Kings group, was 1 of 5 members of university staff who have logged the most volunteering hours in the past year.
She says 'The University of Gloucestershire, where I work, recognises staff and students who do volunteering, and we have a scheme called Bank It where we all log our hours. Most of mine are for Girls' Brigade and also GB FIZZ.'
The staff awards' presentation, which also features awards for things like teaching and courses, took place on 31 May 2018 at Cheltenham Town Hall. Barbara received a certificate and a £50 donation for a charity of her choice, which she has nominated GB to receive.
Barbara adds 'When they were reading out the types of volunteering carried out, Girls' Brigade was mentioned, which was great!'
