Three of Thornton’s Explorer Scouts represented the group last night at the West Yorkshire Scouts County Award Ceremony held at Bradford Cathedral.
Oliver and Tom each formally received their Chief Scout Gold Award, the highest award in the Scout section, which they completed late last spring before they moved up to the Explorer unit. Alongside them Explorer Amy also achieved her Young Leaders Award which was achieved in part by assisting with holding a role with our own Beaver Section.
Alongside proud parents Assistant Scout Leader Ani Barany and Explorer Scout Leader Danny Fox represented the leadership at the event. Ani commented “It was great to see three of our youngsters recieving their awards this evening. They have each put many hours into completeng their respective badges and each should be just as proud of their achievements as we are of them obtaining them – a massive congratulations to them all!”
