    Ambassadors

    I know of four;

    Ian Hislop
    Baroness Betty Boothroyd
    Justin King
    Lord Coe

    I'm not sure of the specifics of what they do, but I think more than one has spoken at big, Scout association events recently.

    I now see that I was wasting my time as Wayne has answered at the same time!

    And I was missing Seb Coe from my list!

    Good advise is never a waste of time

    I take it Justin King is the Sainsburys bloke.

    I think so, Scouting has had a pretty good relationship with Sainsburys for a few years now (since around Eurojam time).

    Yep Justin King is the Chief Executive of Sainsbury's and a big supporter of scouting.

    Yes he is, but on the flipside as an employee of Sainsburys I wasn't aware he was an Ambassador! I know we have reasonably good links between the company and TSA, but it would have been nice to know! And believe me, I go for any thing to do with Scouts I find on the System!

    I work for Sainsburys too and I was surprised.

    To be honest, all of these folk (and the role) are new to me, I had no idea...am I the only one?

    Once I read the list I wondered if he should have been on there. I guess Bear Grylls is sort of one with his high profile, he has put about his Scouting role on his own website.
