51st Pellon Scouts Earn Prestigious King’s Award for Voluntary Services

The 51st Pellon Scout Group was honoured with the King’s Award for Voluntary Service (KAVS) by Ed Anderson CBE, Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire during a memorable event held at the Mytholmroyd Community Centre on the evening of 26th April. The KAVS is the highest accolade a voluntary organisation can receive, equivalent to an MBE, recognising the exceptional contributions and impact of the Scout group on their community.

The community centre was buoyant, with over 100 attendees, all gathered to celebrate the Scout group’s significant achievement. Among the dignitaries present was Steve Duncan DL, CEO of the Community Foundation for Calderdale (CFFC), who expressed his admiration for the group’s dedication and hard work in his congratulatory remarks.

Adding to the celebratory atmosphere was a special video message from Chief Scout, Bear Grylls. His encouraging words inspiring, and deserving for the Scout group, who’s efforts in providing local youth with opportunities to engage in community activities, build skills, and boost their confidence were celebrated wholeheartedly.

The phenomenal impact made by the 51st Pellon Scout Group and all their volunteers was what made them worthy recipients of the KAVS. This recognition reflects the collective efforts and dedication of the entire group.
