Still available for a Summer Camp?....you are NEEDED!

Scripture Union is a volunteer movement and so people like you who give time and energy to be involved in ministry are the heartbeat of what we do.

 

The first event of our summer programme has just begun.  Whilst we are incredibly grateful to all those who have already volunteered or let us know that they can’t help this summer, we still have some pressing needs for volunteers on four specific events.

 

Please could we ask you to consider whether you and/or people you know might still be able to get involved, even at this late stage?
