Mike Gray recently received a Leadership Award for Outstanding Services to Young People from the Jack Petchey Foundation. Here is Akela receiving the Chief Scout’s award for 10 years service at the group’s birthday party earlier this year.
Always well respected, thoughtful and very motivational, Mike places our Young People at the heart of the programme. Mike’s camps are a particular highlight every year for all our young people: learning skills for life whilst having non stop fun and adventurous experiences in a safe environment. His understanding of our Young People and how to keep their interest is undoubted and is why they learn so much and keep coming back for more. The influence that Mike has on all age groups has been hugely important to the significant growth and success of 2nd Mortlake Scout Group. Those that are in his care as well as those who have progressed through the movement speak fondly of their many varied experiences in Scouting!
