About this project: 

We would like to encourage Scout Network members to celebrate all four UK Patron Saint Day’s by taking on four different challenges. Successful members who complete all four challenges will have the opportunity to add ​the UK Patron Saint Challenge digital badge​ to their backpack on Badgr.

What are Patron Saints?

Patron saints are chosen as special protectors or guardians over all areas of life. Traditionally people see them as symbols of how to live a better life. You can have patron saints of all sorts of things, like jobs, organisations and animals. But nations can have patron saints too. England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales each have their own national day named after their patron saint.

All four challenges will be released over the course of the year via our public group on Facebook:

  • Challenge One, St David’s Day, will be released on 1st March 2021.
  • Challenge Two, St Patrick’s Day, will be released on 17th March 2021.
  • Challenge Three, St Georges’ Day, will be released on 23rd April 2021.
  • Challenge Four, St Andrew’s Day, will be released on 30th November 2021. 

Remember to request to join this project and the challenge events.
