VE Day

7th May 2020

VE Day marks the day towards the end of the second world war when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe – 8 May 1945. 2020 marks 75 years since VE Day. Scouts UK have designed a fun badge and put together some activities to help you remember the occasion and the role that Scouts played.

You can order the badge for yourself and your family at Scout Store. It’s a fun badge, which means you don’t have to do anything to earn it (and it’s not one for your uniform). Half of the proceeds will directly benefit the Royal British Legion charity, and the other half will help UK Scouts, so you’ll be doing good with each purchase.

We know that face-to-face Scouts is suspended, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get stuck in to the VE Day activities at home.

All members can join in with this activity. Please find all the details for VE Prepared here: https://www.scouts.org.uk/activities/ve-prepared/

There are also some free printable craft ideas available on the Baker Ross website, so your young ones could create some colourful posters or bunting for VE day or in support of the NHS.
