Bear Grylls praises North Lancs Scouts

October 27, 2016 | Westmorland Gazette

As part of a Million Hands project across Scouting 16th Morecambe Scouts held a dementia cream tea and singalong in Morecambe, where the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sang and entertained 50 people affected by dementia and their carers in our local community.

This week is Scout Community Week and I’m super proud of the difference 16th Morecambe Scouts are making in their local community.

This year 16th Morecambe Scout Group has chosen to focus on dementia. This means, thanks to the 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 meaningful action to improve and support their quality of life in Morecambe.

I would also like to recognise the volunteers at 16th Morecambe for their dedication each week to giving Scouts the chance to have fun, adventure and take part in life-changing opportunities through the A Million Hands project.

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, such as the 16th Morecambe, that the past year 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
