Isle of Wight Scouts recognise exceptional and long service

by | May 23 2022 | Latest News | 0 comments

At the Scouts we want to thank all our volunteers for their contribution to Scouting – it’s an important way to make sure people stay with us and to recognise their achievements. We make awards to recognise: 

  • gallantry and meritorious conduct 
  • outstanding and excellent service 
  • long service and training 

Scouts, one of the largest voluntary youth organisations on the Isle of Wight, has published a Roll of Honour recognising exceptional and long service by volunteer adults, awarded during 2021. The list of recipients represents over 1,500 years of voluntary service. 

Dave Simpson, County Commissioner for Isle of Wight Scouts said: “Around 400 adult volunteers help provide Scouting for young people across the Isle of Wight every year. It is only through their dedication and hard work that over 1,000 young people on the Island can enjoy the adventures and fun that Scouting provides.   I am humbled by the contribution made by every award recipient, particularly during the difficult times we have experienced over the last couple of years.” 

We need more adults to help us, not just as unformed leaders, but also as Trustees, supporters, and helpers. You can find out more about the roles available at www.scouts.org.uk/volunteer/volunteering-with-scouts or on the Isle of Wight Volunteer Centre at https://iwvolunteer.org/
