    Additional Information:

    This is an exciting opportunity to help your local Scout Group. You can decide how much or little time you wish to give.

    There are four age ranges (sections) where you can volunteer:

    Beaver Scouts 6 - 8 years/ Cub Scouts 8 - 10.5 years/ Scouts 10.5 - 14 years

    As part of a leadership team you will help plan, organise and deliver a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences, based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, skills and world. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including: leadership, teamwork and personal development.

    Why volunteer?
    - you'll have fun and feel rewarded
    - you'll learn new skills
    - you'll make new friends
    - you'll add to your CV and have the opportunity to gain qualifications
    - you'll make a difference and give something back to your community.

    Love camping, walking, being outdoors and inspiring young people? If you enjoy being part of a team then this is the perfect match for you. Prior experience or a connection with Scouting is not necessary and we welcome people from all backgrounds. Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

    Different sections meet on different days of the week (evenings) during school term time and occasionally at weekends for other events and activities. You can choose which day you help on and how often (once a term, month, or weekly if you wish).

    Venue Address:

    Normally, our main offices are in Abingdon, Didcot, Henley and Thame. Ninety volunteers and staff are now advising the public from home on our AdviceLine service.

    Additional Information:

    We can all face problems that are too stressful or complicated to sort out alone.

    Last year, our 150 volunteers advised over 11,000 people. We helped three quarters resolve their debt, benefits, employment and housing problems.

    We now need more advisers to help us during and after the Covid-19 crisis.

    What will you get out of it? You will join a friendly team, meet new people, develop your skills and make a real difference to people’s lives.

    You’ll need to have good listening and interpersonal skills, a willingness to learn and be confident with computers. Full training will be provided.

    If you have 8 hours a week to spare for the next 2 years or more and are looking for a satisfying and stimulating volunteer role in your local community, please contact us on the above details.

  • Community Christmas Organiser

    Thame

    Additional Information:

    10 years on and still going! And no, it is not quite Christmas yet!! CCT has been going for 10 years and I feel it is now time to step down from my role as lead organiser. My youngest son is now 12 years old and does not remember me ever being at home on Christmas day and in fact all my children, now 16, 15 and 12, have participated and supported our efforts to ensure that no one is alone on Christmas Day, which is admirable and selfless. However, I do now feel that I would like to be home for the next couple of years to celebrate with my family at home before they eventually fly the nest. All the systems are in place, the venue, the supporters, the funding. My husband, Carl, who has been phenomenal over the years, is happy to continue being treasurer and helping with social media so all we need is someone to take charge of the rest. This is not as tricky as one might think and it may suit a role of a couple or a couple of friends who would like to rise to the challenge of organising this invaluable event. Promotion normally starts around the end of September and obviously finishes by 4pm on Christmas Day after everyone has had an amazing day. This is a highly rewarding role and I cannot express enough how important it has been to people over the years, to know that there are so many people willing to give up some time on the run-up and on Christmas Day. Traditionally, Christmas Day is a breeze provided you are organised and is a true joy to be part of. It would be a real shame to see this wonderful event end but I do now feel that it is time someone else rose to this role and enjoyed the fruits of our wonderful, generous community spirit. Anyone who may be interested in this role, please email Community Christmas Thame on communitychristmasthame@gmail.com with the subject line Lead Role Application or message me on 07747095563. Please feel free to post any questions, I will endeavour to answer openly and promptly (I don't necessarily check every day but I will do my best). Best wishes, Kathy

    Our recently rebuilt and very modern and fresh HQ is at Southern Road and our units - Rainbows through to Rangers- are run primarily in there. However we also take our members out and about too.

    Additional Information:

    Plenty of roles in Girlguiding.
    Here in Thame we are heavily involved in the community, and we would love to have all types of people to help out with us fundraising and being involved in the Carnival, Music In the Park, and with our trips out.

    A few of our popular options are listed here.

    Help out on a parent rota - by offering a helping hand at a few meetings per year, you can support your daughter's leaders and experience the fun of guiding.

    Help with administration - you could get involved with anything from planning events and camps to managing finances and helping with fundraising.

    Share a specific skill - whatever you're great at - from football coaching to yoga teaching, graphic design to engineering - you could help inspire girls to try something new.

    Become an occasional helper - you'll assist in running groups on an ad-hoc basis. You will be supported by other volunteers to assist in delivering activities, trips and adventures for girls.

    Become a leader - if you'd like to support a group more regularly there are lots of opportunities to get involved.

    Working alongside other volunteers, you'll be supported with learning and development opportunities and will make a huge difference in your local community.

    There is more information on www.girlguiding.org.uk about volunteering with us as a whole organisation

    Venue Address:

    Thame Scout Hut Southern Road Thame OX9 2DZ

    Additional Information:

    Scouting relies on strong leadership. So if you can motivate others, keep a cool head and balance a variety of views then you would be an ideal chairperson for Thame Scout Group . With experience of steering meetings to produce excellent decisions, you’ll be equally willing to speak your mind as encouraging others to express their views. You will use your strong communication skills to help a team of committed adult volunteers who make up a Executive Committee arrive at good decision that will benefit young people. Able to work as part of a team, you will also contribute the direction and development of the Group. No previous experience of Scouting is necessary. What’s more important is your own skills and experience as well as empathy with our mission and values. We will provide all appropriate training and ongoing support.
