A thank you message from Bear Grylls, Chief Scout

Date: 17th Dec 2020 Author: Matthew Ruddle
Here’s a message from the Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, to all of the Scouting volunteers, leaders and helpers:
For me, this festive season is about one thing: kindness.
It’s something we’ve seen a lot of from our Scouts and volunteers in 2020. You’ve spent the year helping others, even when you’ve been having a tough time yourselves. You’ve done everything you can to support young people. And the way you’ve supported each other is truly inspiring.
Our end of year film is about kindness too. (Click here to view the video!) It’s about finding special moments to show how much we care, rediscovering the magic in what we do and the incredible reward of seeing young people’s faces light up (even if it’s on Zoom). That’s special – and that’s all thanks to you.
I hope you can find some time to rest and recharge over the holiday (and wow, have you earned it).
Happy and peaceful wishes to you all – and here’s to a better 2021!
– Bear Grylls
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
