Hurricane Irma

In response to the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma, a Just Giving page has been set up to raise funds to support affected units in the Caribbean Branches to rebuild their units, and ensure girls can continue to access the benefits of guiding. If you or your unit would like to make a contribution, please follow the link:
Our thoughts go out to all our WAGGGS friends in the Caribbean and around the world at this time.
