Scouts Cymru Adult Volunteer Of The Year



Congratulations to Heulwen Jenkins, 1st Wenvoe Scout Group’s Cub Leader and Assistant Beaver Leader, who was awarded Scouts Cymru’s Adult Volunteer Award for 2019!

At the October Celebration of Scouting annual event at the Metropole Hotel in mid-Wales, Heulwen was presented with her award by Rhian Moore, Chief Commissioner for Wales, and Joe Doherty, Scout Adventurer (Antarctica). They are pictured below along with Glenys Shelley, Cardiff and Vale Scouts, who was also awarded a lifetime achievement award at the ceremony. Many congratulations to both.

“Out of more than 3,100 adult Scout Leaders and assistants across Wales, Heulwen definitely deserves this award for the energy and enthusiasm she brings to delivering our programme and growing our Group. This award recognises her engagement with the Wenvoe community, including inviting other adults in the village to share their skills and experiences with our Young People, and celebrating the badges they are awarded. It is a privilege to have Heulwen as one of our leaders and this award celebrates how she lives the Scout values, champions diversity and inclusion in Scouting and helps Young People and adult volunteers develop #SkillsForLife. Congratulations!”
