Scouts present Military Wives with special badge
Explorer Scouts from Torridge presented the choir with the community badge.
THREE scouts from Torridge surprised the Military Wives Choir during a practice night at Chivenor to present them with a community badge.
Explorer scouts Jon Ashton, Alice Allin and Cara Honeywill presented the badge to the Choir.
To earn the badge, the Scouts have to take part in a voluntary service project that is of benefit to their community over time.
Cara said: “Birthday badges happen every year on Scouting’s birthday; they are given to high profile people, who we feel have met the criteria to earn the badge.
