Chief Scout, Bear Grylls added: “A massive congratulations to Alex who has been selected to represent the UK at Roverway 2024. Roverway is an amazing opportunity to discover yourself and make new friends, while participating in a programme that demonstrates true scouting spirit by developing skills for life.

“I’d like to say good luck to our brilliant UK Contingent in their reparation for the event. They will be heading off on the trip of a lifetime to a beautiful destination in Stavanger. The diversity of people they will meet will remind us all about what the world has to offer: they will experience new cultures and make many new friends, becoming ever more tolerant and caring about others through this experience.”
