SCOUTS: Shining lights in community

editorial image

This is Scout Community Week and I’m super proud of the difference Longhoughton Scouts are making in their local community.

This year Longhoughton Scouts have chosen to focus on clean water. This means, thanks to Scouting’s award-winning campaign A Million Hands, they have spent time learning about the issue, finding out about the people it affects and taking action to improve and support quality of life.

I would also like to recognise the volunteers at Longhoughton Scouts for their dedication each week to giving Scouts the chance to have fun, adventure and take part in life-changing opportunities.

A Million Hands is celebrating its one year anniversary this October and it’s down to the 200,000 members who have signed up to take part that it has been such a success.

During this special week, I would just like to say A Million Thanks to these incredible Scouts. They really are shining lights in their community.

Bear Grylls,

Chief Scout
