York Ebor District Commissioner, Nigel White, has set a challenge for all Scout Groups and Explorer Units in the District:

“To help grow our public profile, I would like Scout Groups and Explorer Units to do something positive for our community, ideally in one or more of the following areas:

  • Mental health
  • Food poverty
  • Loneliness
  • Green spaces/conservation/environment

Be sure to let us know what project(s) you plan to do. We could even send a photographer from our Marketing Team to put together a story for The Press! Please provide a summary of what you did, including some photos to dc.ebor@nys.org.uk by the end of December 2021. Our friends at York Centre for Voluntary Services will judge the best projects. We hope to award prizes for the best Group Project, Team Project and Individual Projects that make a positive impact in their community and secure great publicity for Scouting.
