BARNSLEY Scouts are on the look-out for volunteers to help keep groups running.

Each week the group runs sessions for more than 1,200 young people from across the borough but lack volunteers to help the groups to continue to run.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Scouts said: “Each week, we offer over 1,200 young people skills for life and helping them become amazing young people. This is only possible thanks to our incredible volunteers we have who give up their time to help.

“But, we are struggling.

“We want to offer more young people these opportunities but we can't do this without more volunteers. We have roles to fit every lifestyle and skill set with all the relevant training provided.

“We don't just need volunteers to work alongside our young people but we also need volunteers behind the scenes to help keep our groups running.”
