The 3rd Eastbourne Company of the Boys’ Brigade is on the hunt for new recruits as part of a national campaign to get more children to join the adventure.

The National Boys’ Brigade accepts children aged five to 18 and teaches them valuable life skills, with added benefits including the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The 3rd Eastbourne Company, which is celebrating its 61st year, will host an Open Company evening at Victoria Baptist Church on Wednesday, February 26 (5.30pm) to allow children to come along and find out more about the fun they could have as part of the Boys’ Brigade.

Captain Adrian Attwater said, “We offer opportunities to children that they don’t get at home or at school. They learn lots, stay active and have so much fun.”

The National Boys’ Brigade has reached out to millions of children across the globe for more than 125 years, with more than 75,000 members currently in its ranks in the UK.

They pride themselves on having a team of dedicated, fully-trained and CRB-checked volunteers, many of whom have gone through the Boys’ Brigade ranks themselves, to deliver all the fun and engaging activities.

Above all, the Boys’ Brigade promises to help children make friends, challenge themselves, discover and develop their potential and have a exciting adventure on the way.

The other asset, unlike many clubs and societies, is that there isn’t a huge fee to pay to join.
