Nominate your West Lancs Scouts Community Hero Awards

Date: 23rd Jan 2021 Author: Jon Nutten

2020 was a difficult year for us all but some of our members went that extra mile to help, finding innovative and inspiring ways to support good causes and their local communities. Whilst face to face Scouting has been very limited, the values that underpin our organisation remain as strong as ever during these difficult times.

On Sunday 21st February at 4pm, the County will be hosting an online ‘Awards Evening’ to recognise individuals who have fulfilled the criteria above. In addition, during this evening, we will also be taking the opportunity to thank all adult members of the organisation for continuing to support Scouting in the last year.

A theme of our annual ‘Founders Feast’ celebrations is always one of thanks for the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and whilst we sadly won’t be able the hold that event this year – we are encouraging all members to save the date for this event so we can gather together and recognise the great work that has continued to be done, even in a challenging year such as 2020.

Community Heroes: We are asking you to inform all your leaders and volunteers so they can nominate individuals for an award.

The nominations will be reviewed by an Awards panel lead by Craig, Carl, and Gail. Please note that the West Lancs media team may contact those chosen to receive an award for further information or for further media such as photos or a short VT interview.

Please help us recognise the great work of our Young People, leaders and volunteers.

We look forward to seeing you on the day too – for now, please just save the date and further registration details for attendance will follow in due course.
