|A special “Scouting through adversity” award was made to Purple Pack Cub, Theo Bishop at the County Awards Ceremony in January by the Lancashire Scouting Lodge of Allegiance.
At the age of two, Theo was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy which causes him problems with walking. He has been accepted for an operation in America which will cost £45,000. This will help him walk without the aid of a frame.The monetary prize will help towards this cost. To make a donation to the fund visit – http://www.theosbigleap.org.uk/
