On Founder’s Day, we want to say a massive, well-deserved THANK YOU to you!

Each week, you provide skills and opportunities to nearly half a million young people. From running exciting programmes, to driving the minibus, crunching the budgets and everything in between. It’s because of you that Scouts happens.

Together, in one year we achieved our biggest single year of growth for 70 years, provided comfort for the nation when it was in mourning, were named as a recipient of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Volunteering Award, and to top it off was named the Charity Times Charity of the Year! 

We know times are still tough, and it would be so easy to let a busy schedule or another commitment get in the way of your volunteering. But you always manage to find the time, and we couldn’t appreciate it more.

Whether you volunteer each week, or as and when you can, you’ve made a positive difference and supported our young people when they’ve needed us most.

As a thank you, we want to give something back to you. We have just over 1,000 copies of our beautiful history book, ‘Scouts: The Stories that Built a Movement’ to give away (while stocks last and only until midnight on Thursday 23 Feb). Please use the code ‘FOUNDERSDAY’ at checkout to redeem your free copy. Along with some other offers just for members. We hope you enjoy these.

You always find new ways to inspire us, and we couldn’t thank you more for everything you do for our movement and for our young people.

Your friends,

Bear Grylls
