The Unit that meets in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin in Dublin is unique – the only one in the country to meet in a hospital. This much-loved Unit opened on July 3rd 2008 and is going from strength to strength.
The Unit has a team of about 16 volunteers who take it in turns to run the weekly meetings, with 4 Leaders volunteering each week.
Every Thursday evening patients who are well enough are invited to participate in a Guide meeting. Like any IGG weekly meeting, the sessions involve a variety of games, crafts and activities that encourage girls to develop confidence and a broad range of skills in a fun and friendly environment. Many of the patients enjoy them so much that, when they return home, they choose to join their local Brownie or Guide Unit.
The Coordinator of the Crumlin Unit says “From week to week we don’t know what patients we will have so the programme we draw up is very flexible for different ages, and also bearing in mind that some of the girls may have drips, or be in wheelchairs, or in casts etc. It’s worth it, though, when you see the girls really involved in activities – distracted from hospital life for a few hours a week.”
