Birmingham Teen Day

Saturday 26 September 2020 Trefoil House Girlguiding Teen Days

For our second Teen Day of the year we’ll be at Trefoil House in Birmingham. Led by our Young Ambassadors, this is a delectable chocolate-themed day not to be missed.

You’ll learn to make and decorate chocolate truffles before sampling your handiwork! Accompanied by lunch, drinks and snacks, this will be a delicious day of treats where teens can meet new people who really understand what they’re going through.

Our Teen Days are new for 2020 and are meet ups dedicated to people aged 13-17 who are living with a brain tumour and any siblings also aged 13-17. These days are completely free to attend but please make sure you book your space in advance so we know who to expect.

    What to expect

    We know that your teenage years can be a challenging time and it’s safe to say that living with a brain tumour doesn’t make this any easier. As well as being lots of fun, these events have been designed to help teenagers feel better supported and able to cope with the challenges they’re facing.

    The day will be led by our Young Ambassadors, who are young adults affected by a brain tumour diagnosis, and along with members of The Brain Tumour Charity will be on hand to chat and answer your questions.

    Please, try not to worry about…

    • Money. The day is free to attend and lunch will be provided free of charge.
    • Not making friends. We guarantee you will, everyone is in a similar boat and understands your situation so you’re sure to make friends. Plus, our friendly team are there to help too.
    • Fatigue. You’ll be surrounded by people who understand and if there’s anything you don’t want to do, or if you just want some time to relax, that's 100% okay!
    • Not being good at making chocolates. This is a relaxed space of supportive peers where it’s the taking part and having fun that counts.
    • Coming alone. You’re welcome to bring any siblings who are also aged 13-17, however, you’re sure to meet lots of people so don’t worry if you do come alone; you soon won’t be!
