Gold Chief Scout Award for Ben

Asst District Commissioner Robin Hooper presents Ben with his award. Scout leader Steve Lamb looks on.

We’re proud to be able to say that Ben Faruqui has achieved the Chief Scout’s Gold Award.  This is the highest award available in the Scout Section.

In order to gain the award and badge Scouts need to complete a number of challenges over a period of approximately 2 1/2 years including learning about different communities and cultures, completing a schedule of fitness training, assisting in a community project or charitable work and learning skills to navigate, cook and camp in all conditions.   Additionally, Scouts are required to demonstrate that they take part in a variety of adventurous activities from sailing and kayaking to climbing and abseiling and that they can complete a one night away distance hike carrying their own tent, food and equipment.

The Chief Scouts Gold Award challenges young people to do their best in a wide range of events.   Ben is one of a small number of Scouts who succeed in gaining this accolade.   Ben  was presented his award by Robin Hooper, the Assistant District Commissioner for Scouts in Surrey Heath District.  Well done Ben.
