We also have a fantastic opportunity, just for our leaders who are part of Inspire (aged 18-30):

Inspire Italy interrailing (Book and go)

  • We are recruiting two 18-30 leaders as part of the leader selection and then it will be a book and go for other adult members aged 18-30 (9-10 days, around £1100-£1200)

And we haven't forgotten the Brownies: 

Brownies in Brussels (Book and go)

  • We will be recruiting a planning team for this event to run a weekend event in Brussels, where unit leaders from across the region can book on and take their Brownies, on an adventure estate in Brussels. This trip will enable Brownie leaders to gain their international licence whilst also attending a mass event. Price is tbc.  

And finally:

Adventures in Lisbon (Book and go) for Guides, Rangers, Inspire and Trefoil Guild

  • We will be recruiting a planning team for this event, for a planned wide game in the city centre of Lisbon, followed by an evening event. Leaders from across the region can book on and take their units. Units organise their own travel, accommodation, food etc, but, as they are attending a planned event, this trip can also be used for leaders to gain their international licence. This event will be open to Guides and upwards.
