Welcome to #ThankTwo Day!
Every year on February 22, Scouts take some time to commemorate the history of Scouts and thank the volunteers who make it possible. This February 22 – after what’s frankly been a bit of a rubbish year – we want to double the amount of gratitude we show.
We’re asking volunteers, young people and parents/careers to join us by celebrating #ThankTwo. It’s easy to get involved – all we ask is that you show your gratitude and thank two people and/or groups of people. These people can be fellow members who’ve kept Scouting despite the setbacks, volunteers who’ve organised Scouts meetings, and/or heroes of your local community.
Give your chosen heroes prime spot on your windows. We’ve created a couple of templates which you can download below. Once you and your young people have decorated them, we want you to show off your designs and highlight the two people you want to thank by displaying the signs in your window. That way, everyone who walks pass will know who’s gone above and beyond in your community.
Be as creative as you like – you don’t need to use the templates if you don’t want to, and you can draw, paint, write or use collage to make your sign – but most importantly, we want to see what you come up with!– Take a picture of the display in your window and share your thanks using the hashtag #ThankTwo and #SystonScouts. You can do this as a group activity, with a child over half term, or if you’re feeling artistic or fancy a relaxing activity, could give it a go yourself.

One Time Donation
As a charitable organisation, we rely on donations, grants and a small membership fee we charge our members. We try to keep this fee as low as possible to keep Scouting as accessible to low income families as possible. As the saying goes, every little helps and if you believe in giving young people skills for life, anything you can give truly is appreciated.
