Gone home: Colin Scott

26th November 2014

Clyde Region was sorry to learn of the sudden passing of Colin Scott earlier this week.

A stalwart of the 24th Glasgow, Colin came up through the Group as a young person and on becoming 18 years old, immediately joined the Scout section leadership team. Colin's leadership skills led him to later become District Commissioner for Bearsden & Milngavie District for a number of years where he provided support and wise counsel to adult volunteers across the District.

Latterly, Colin's professional skills as an Accountant were utilised by Scouting when he was appointed Honorary Treasurer of Scouts Scotland where he not only oversaw the stewardship of the finances of SHQ but he provided grass roots support to local Groups, Districts and Regions (Areas) in complying with the accounting requirements of Scouting and of the Scottish Charity Regulator, OSCR.

Colin returned to his roots of the 24th Glasgow just a few years ago to take on the role of Group Chairman, supporting the GSL Liz with the maintenance of their impressive Scout Hall and implementing a programme of fundraising to support one of the Region's biggest Scout Groups.

Colin's funeral service will be at Baljaffray Parish Church at 10.30am on Monday 1st December, followed by a service at Clydebank Crematorium at 11.30am.

Colin will be greatly missed by his many friends in Scouting and our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Magda and his family at this sad time.

Will be missed, always had time for a chat when applying for funding. I am sure he will be overlooking our Ukulele concert next year. God Bless
