Chubb Fire received a large number of entries with many scouts evidently keen to demonstrate their artistic flair and knowledge of fire safety. To enter, Scout Groups were invited to design and make a Christmas card showing ‘festive fun on a theme of fire safety’.

In recognition of the 100th Alloway Ayrshire Scout Group’s entry, the Group was presented with a cheque for £100 by Andy Kime, Local Business Manager from Chubb Fire. The prize money is to be spent on an outdoor activity or equipment for an outdoor activity for the whole Scout Group. The winning design, from the 10th Fife 1st Cupar Scout Group will be used for Chubb Fire’s Christmas card, which will be sent out all of its UK customers.

Commenting on the successful competition, Andy Kime said: “We were pleasantly surprised by the number of Scout Groups that got into the festive spirit early this year by designing these cards, and their efforts are very much appreciated. Our annual competition enhances the support which we already give to the Scouting community and hopefully reinforces the fire safety message to thousands of families nationwide.”

Chubb Fire has sponsored the Scouts’ Fire Safety Badge for nearly three years, and the badge aims to raise the awareness of fire safety among Scouts and their families across the UK. Since its inception, the Chubb Fire Safety badge is proving to be one of the fastest growing and most popular, with over 38,000 Scouts completing the badge over the last three – which means at least 38,000 young people now have a home escape plan.
