I’m lucky and proud to be ambassador for their monumental birthday party.

Tomorrow is the 100th birthday and, like local Cubs, I will be renewing my Cub Scout promise.

It’s been an incredible year so far with trips, fun-days and camp outs.

But the best is yet to come, with Cubs’ 100 birthday parties taking place across the country.

For 100 years Cub Scouts have been helping in their communities and this year is no different.

Through our A Million Hands project, Cubs have been helping to make their communities a better place to live and work.

During this special week, I would just like to say a big happy birthday to Cubs, past and present, as we look forward to another 100 years of endeavour; learning new skills, having fun and making life-long friends.

Steve Backshall,

Cubs100 Ambassador,

The Scout Association.
