Episode 3: Conny & Scouting

Episode 3 of Volunteer Stories sees Conny talk about her experience volunteering as a Scout Leader for 6 years in Vienna, Austria. During the interview Conny and I discuss the types of activities Scouts do, what skills you gain from being a Scout, what the best camp-fire food is, and Conny’s favourite Scouting memories.

I was delighted to interview Conny as Scouts and Girl Guides are two volunteer organisations close to my heart. Thanks to both organisations I have travelled to many countries, made lots of friends, tried lots of exciting activities and gained valuable life skills. I am eternally indebted to the volunteers who help these organisations operate and am pleased to be able to share Conny’s story.


Episode 3 also features music by musicians who have been Scouts or Girl Guides including Dave Clarke who is in a band called The Winterbourne Project and Emily Grimes who is in a band called Concept.
