ScoutsCymru launches Celebration Awards searching for ‘dedicated’ Welsh Scouts

By Raspberry Jim,


ScoutsCymru has launched its fourth annual Celebration of Scouting Awards searching for the most “inspirational and innovative” members across Wales.

The organisation, which supports over 15,000 young people in Wales to gain skills for life through exploration and adventure, will this year recognise volunteers of all ages across nine categories.

These include Inspirational Volunteer, New and Innovative, Community Impact, Group, Trustee Volunteer, Adult Volunteer, young Volunteer, Lifetime Achievement, and this year’s newly launched award Excellence in Leadership and Resilience.

The awards, which will launch online, aim to celebrate and recognise the success of Scouts throughout Wales, who strive to do more, learn more and be more.

On this year’s launch, Chief Commissioner of Wales Rhian Moore, said they were extremely excited to be celebrating the very best in Welsh scouting once again this year. She said:

“The Celebration of Scouting Awards are the highlight of our calendar here at ScoutsCymru as they enable us to shine a light on the fantastic work being undertaken here in Wales.

“Our awards recognise the outstanding work of volunteers of all ages and experience and act as a thank you for all their inspirational and innovative work over the past year.

“This year’s awards will be even more special as we’ve added a new category, recognising leaders who have demonstrated excellence and resilience and truly made a difference within Scouting and their community during unprecedented times.

“This is your chance to get involved and nominate a leader, fellow Scout, or volunteer who you think has gone above and beyond and deserves to be celebrated.

“With most of us now socially isolating, this is a chance to come together to recognise and celebrate those who are uniting communities and inspiring positive futures for the people of Wales.”

The Celebration of Scouting Awards will take place later this year with a date set to be determined by ScoutsCymru.
