Special Founder’s Day event badge 22 2 22

Those of you with a keen radar for interesting fun facts might have noticed that this year’s Founder’s Day (the birthday of Scouting founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell) falls on a palindrome – being a sequence of letters or numbers that read the same backward and forward.

“Twosday” 22 2 22 will mark the end of the 222 days in sequence this century! In numerology 2222 is associated with positive energy and indicates that you are likely to lead a balanced and fulfilled life.

Wow! I’m sure I am not the only person who sees the analogy with the impact of our Scout programme in enabling our members to become confident, independent, well-rounded citizens who do their civic duty and make constructive contributions to the world they live in!

In honour of this once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, we are issuing a Special Founder’s Day Event badge that can be purchased at the Scout Shop for R15. We will advise when they are available.

For info on your Regional Founder’s Day weekend events, we refer you to your regional communication platforms.

FUN FACT: There are 6 palindromes in this message. Can you spot them?
