Tribute to Lily

It is with a very sad heart that we inform you that our President, Cllr Lily Henderson MBE, has passed away.

There was no-one prouder to be involved in Blackpool Scouting than her.
Lily’s lifelong love of Scouting began when her son was a member of the 29th Blackpool (St. Peters) Church Cub Scout Pack. It has continued since then, raising lots of money, supporting sponsored events, jumble sales, coffee mornings, presenting certificates and speaking on behalf of the Scouts in either the Town Hall, at the Dinner Dance or to anyone/any organisation that she could promote the benefits and values of Scouting to.
However, it was when talking with our young people, and volunteers at a programme night or a District event, watching the Gang Show and seeing, first-hand, what a brilliant movement she was involved with, was when she was the most happiest.
Our thoughts are with Victoria and the family.
We have lost a true friend – Gone Home.
