Cub leader David Nattan said:
“This is the highest award in Scouting and a great achievement that not many attain. Jacob has always enjoyed his time in cubs and scouts and has been a credit to himself and the uniform. So a big 'well done’ to Jacob!”
To qualify for the award Jacob had to earn all 6 challenge badges - community, global, outdoors, creative, fitness and promise - this involved taking part in a varied programme learning many skills and helping others.
