BB Introduces Home Activities

Wednesday March 25 2020

The Boys’ Brigade has launched an online programme of activities for young people stuck at home during the coronavirus epidemic.

The #BBatHOME programme will provide a weekly pack of six activities for each of the BB’s three age groups (4-8, 8-11 and 11+), and will continue during the period that the outbreak means BB groups cannot meet face-to-face.

The first set of packs are already available, and the next will go online from Friday March 27.  The BB is encouraging people to share their engagement with the programme online using the hashtgag #BBatHOME

A statement from the Boys’ Brigade said: “Following on from face to face BB activities and events being suspended and the recent school closures, it has been great to see leaders coming up with different ways of reaching out to our members. We are incredibly proud of the determined response from leaders to the challenges that we are all facing. We all want the BB adventure to continue for every child and young person in the Brigade in the weeks and months ahead.

“To help support leaders in doing this, we are excited to launch #BBatHOME – a new programme concept to enable us to continue to engage our members with opportunities to learn, grow and discover through a balanced programme of activities in their own homes, supported by their parents/carers.”

The packs, along with guidance for parents/carers are available from www.boys-brigade.org.uk/bbathome-parents-carers 

Another youth organisation, the music charity Fischy Music, is holding online assemblies at 11am every Monday through its YouTube channel. These will continue under the latest, tighter lockdown rules, with each of the musicians joining in from their own homes.
