A MUSLIM scout group is holding a recruitment drive this weekend looking for volunteers to join them or start their own groups.

1st Heckmondwike Ansaar Scouts is holding the adult recruitment day on Saturday from 2pm to 5pm, in an effort to meet the increasing demand from within the local Muslim community.

No previous experience is required, and training will be provided, with plenty of behind-the-scenes roles available. Volunteering can be done on a weekly basis or on an ad hoc basis too.

Leader at the first Muslim scout group in the Heavy Woollen district, Abdul Latif said: “I volunteer to give our next generation skills for life and confidence and make them into go-getters and doers.”

The recruitment day takes place at the Al Hikmah Centre, Track Road, Batley.
