The first Rainbow unit to be established in Ealing faces being closed at Christmas as the volunteers who run their weekly, term-time meetings have to give up due to personal problems.

The Rainbow unit has been running for 16 years and currently has a membership of 12 girls.

�We need new people to come and help us run this unit. We are already short of volunteers to run the Brownies and Guides in Acton & Ealing�. Says Joanne Davies (Brownie Leader for the 16th Ealing Brownies in Northfields).

�We want people who are enthusiastic and love working with children. We offer full training and support plus the chance to have the most fun that you ever had! I think that it is only once you get involved in running a unit that you realise how much the children give back to you. They are incredible, so full of ideas and so keen to do activities�

Rainbows are the youngest girls in the Girlguiding UK organisation. They join when they are aged 5 and move on to Brownies when they are aged 7. Their meetings are held in South Ealing and run from 5pm till 6pm.

Can you help? Can you spare a couple of hours a week to help run the meetings? The activities include playing games, learning about themselves and their environment, crafts and singing. It provides a good environment for girls to grow in confidence, make new friends and have lots of fun.
