Scotland's Young Real Heroes

15th October 2014

Clyde Region was delighted to learn that last night that a group of young volunteers from the 77th Glasgow had been attended the awards ceremony for “Scotland’s Real Heroes” and that they had won the award for being Scotland's Young Real Heroes!

They represented the almost 60 young people who volunteer with our group on a weekly basis, providing one to one care for young Scouts with physical disabilities.

Commenting on this award, Regional Commissioner Stuart said, 'Scouting exists to empower young people to make a positive contribution to society and I was delighted that this public award truly epitomizes all that is right with our young people! To all of those involved on a weekly basis, well done – just rewards for all that you do.'
