Unlike most Scout groups that meet in sections once a week,  1st Madrid meets all sections same time, same place  twice a month for 3 hours or sometimes more. This is because some parents drive for over a  hour to get to us, and it’s just not practical to drop siblings off at different times. The advantage is that sometimes we can create and share really great initiatives across the whole group.

This week we began a 3 month collaboration with Fundación Down Madrid and Explorers. We used this opportunity to tackle issues of Inclusion and Diversity across the group and to intoduce our guests to everyone. 

Carrying on with the theme we did a group photo to support #IWD #BreaktheBias which is the 2022 International Women’s Day theme. #IWD 2022 chosen charity is #WAGGGS The Worldwide Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts
