7th Goodmayes Explorers, Muhammad Islam and Ayesha Karim were awarded the prestigious Jack Petchey Award for outstanding services to Scouting last night. The Award Ceremony took place at Sir James Hawkey Hall and the selfless work of many Scouts and their Leaders was celebrated. Muhammad and Ayesha spend much of their spare time volunteering at their Scout Group, helping run sessions for younger sections.
Five new Leaders at 7th Goodmayes began their journey this weekend by attending the Muslim Scout Fellowship training weekend near Birmingham – Introduction to Scouting. Some have moved on from being Young Leaders to Adult Leaders. We are blessed to have them as part of our team:) Welcome to the BIG adventure Ladies!
7th Goodmayes celebrated as it welcomed 2 Young Leaders into its group of volunteers. It was testimony to the development of the Group as a whole – as both these young people had been Scouts themselves – they had now completed their training and were able to give their time back to the Group. Rumaysa Rafique had originally joined the Group as a Beaver and Nabeeha Yeahya had joined the Group as an Explorer Scout.
