I completed the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon on 26 April in 3:45:13 to raise money for The Scout Association. You can see how much I’ve raised and still sponsor me through my fundraising film or my VirginGiving site. What an amazing experience!
(Your rather sore, but very happy Membership Secretary).
It is with great sadness we report the passing of Jim Buckley. Jim was a member of the 20th Sheffield (Ecclesall) Scout Group for over 70 years as a Wolf Cub, Scout, Rover and Leader.
He became Group Scout Leader in 1961, a position he held for over 30 years and on retirement became Honorary GSL and continued to support the Group until ill health prevented him.
It is impossible to say how many young people have had so many opportunities because of Jim’s decades of service. We will all miss him.
The picture above is the traditional Scout tracking sign which means gone home.
Jim’s funeral will be held at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium on Tuesday 31st March at 10.00am.
Family flowers only, donations to the Woodland Trust – more details will appear here when we have them.
