Silver Gaisce for Kate

Huge congratulations to Kate Connolly of Ballyroan Senior Branch, Dublin, who received a Silver Gaisce Award at a special ceremony in The Helix.

This followed many months of hard work by Kate who, as part of her Award preparation, learnt cross-stitch, did swimming and helped with Ballyroan Brownies, which she really enjoyed. Not surprisingly, she felt a great sense of achievement on receiving the Award!

Kate says she gained worthy life-skills while doing her Award preparations and is currently working towards her IGG Silver Moon.

Kate has been a member of IGG since the age of five when she joined Ballyroan Ladybirds and says that, during her time with the organisation, she has gained leadership, co-operation and organisational skills.

“IGG has given me great opportunities,” she says, “The most recent being a participant of Roverway 2018.”
