Alvanon has donated consultancy services through its AlvaInsight division worth £10,000 as a contribution towards a long term project enabling Girlguiding UK to review uniform sizing for its membership of more than 500,000 girls and young women. Alvanon analysts developed a body growth chart incorporating key fit points for measurement and a recommended grade rule table and guidelines for the top and bottom elements of the uniform. In addition Girlguiding UK received AlvaInsight’s commitment for further consultation to support the implementation of improvements that the review recommends.
Commenting on Alvanon’s support, Nicola Johnson, merchandise planner for Girlguiding UK Trading Service said: “We always want to supply uniforms that are comfortable and that our members are proud to wear. Alvanon has been generous in supporting us and providing invaluable, high-quality information and we are looking forward to working with our suppliers to see if and where improvements can be made.”
Girlguiding UK is the United Kingdom's largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women, with more than half a million members including about 100,000 trained volunteers. 'Girlguiding UK' is a registered charity operating under the name of The Guide Association. It is incorporated and governed by Royal Charter.
