This is #iwillWeek and I’m super proud of the difference 36th Melton Mowbray Scouts are making in their local community.

This year 36th Melton Mowbray Scouts have chosen to focus on clean water. 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 Melton Mowbray.

I would also like to recognise the volunteers at 36th Melton Mowbray Scouts 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 celebrated 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 36th Melton Mowbray Scouts 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.

Bear Grylls, Chief Scout
