Local Volunteer Success


Milly MacKinnon, Girlguiding Paisley's Division Comissioner, was nominated for and awarded the Scottish Chief Commissioners award for her outstanding commitment to Girlguiding Scotland.
The award was presented by Sheila Young, County Comissioner at Lapwing Lodge, as Milly was at a face to face Guide meeting.
Milly is an amazing volunteer who runs 3rd South Rainbows and 33rd Paisley Brownies, and helps at the 9th Paisley Guides as well as managing the 100 + volunteer leaders in Paisley. Milly has continued to provide weekly meetings both virtual and when allowed face to face for all of the young people in her units despite being a key worker.
Here are a few of the comments that were included in her nomination. They come from the girls in her units and those she volunteers with:
"Milly selflessly gives up her time to plan events and provide fantastic opportunities for girls and young woman in Paisley."
"She has been a support to me when trying to achieve Guiding goals and helped whenever she could to allow me to reach that goal.  She is loved by all the girls who come through the unit.  She is a wonderful leader."
"Milly is an excellent ambassador for Guiding and this award would help to confirm what Paisley Guiders already know."
Congratulations Milly!
