Scouting in the United Kingdom has been raising funds for a memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. The project is designed to raise awareness of “Remembrance”. The memorial is to remember those who have given service to Scouting and their communities, especially members of Scouting who have suffered through conflict.
In recent weeks the foundations for the memorial have been laid, and work is progressing on building it. But more funds are still needed.
How can I help?
Scouts across the UK, the Commonwealth, and across the world have been buying badges from The Scouting Memorial Project to wear on their uniforms or to wear in normal clothing. These badges are available from The Scouting Memorial Project.
