Celebrating Elizabeth for National Volunteer Week 2024!

Q. With this year’s theme for National Volunteer Week being ‘Something for Everyone’, what is your favourite ‘something’ about volunteering for Girl Guides WA, Lizzie?

“I really enjoy working with all the girls across the Unit, whether that be our junior Guides, Guides, or Rangers. It’s a great privilege to support young girls in trying new things and discovering the world around them, without barriers! It’s also been a great opportunity to share something with my daughter, Evie, who is a Guide herself.”

Q. What is your number one tip for balancing volunteering with other life commitments?

“Remembering that you don’t have to do everything. Balance is literally the key – and it’s okay to say no!”
