Mike has praised Scout Community Week and the hard work and dedication of Scouts across the country.
Scout Community Week is a UK-wide initiative that is taking place across the country this week (14th-20th May) to help Scouts do 1 thing to have an impact in their community. 125,000 young people from 2,500 Scout groups will be taking park in a week of community action that is aimed at improving their respective local areas, raising funds, and highlighting the need for more volunteers.
Mike has signed Early Day Motion 24 which praises Scout Community Week and congratulates the Scout Association for all that it does to assist young people. For more information on the event, click here.
Commenting, Mike said: I am always amazed by the commitment that Scouts show towards their local communities and the valuable impact that they have on the lives of those within them. Of course this would not be possible without the help of a large group of dedicated volunteers. I know that the Scouts are always looking for more helpers, so if you think that you would like to get involved with their work, please get in touch with your local group.
