The 62nd Doncaster Scout Group has won the Chubb Fire’s Bonfire Night Poster Competition, having successfully designed an informative poster promoting Fire Safety for the forthcoming Bonfire night on November 5th. The competition was open to all Scout Groups across the UK as part of Chubb Fire’s ongoing support for The Scout Association and its commitment to spreading the fire safety message.

1st Place went to 62nd Doncaster Scout Group, Doncaster

In recognition of the 62nd Doncaster Scout Group’s winning entry, they were presented with a cheque for £400. The prize money is to be spent on providing the Group outdoor activity to enjoy.

Chubb Fire has sponsored the Scouts’ Fire Safety Badge for the last two 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 two and a half years-which means at least 38,000 young people now have a home escape plan.

Commenting on the competition Chubb Fire’s Marketing Communications Manager Jane Garland said: “Last Bonfire Night there were over a thousand recorded incidents and since the firework most likely to cause harm is in fact the unassuming sparkler, just about everybody who is enjoying Bonfire Night celebrations could be in danger of having an accident. We are committed to raising awareness of fire safety and with so many youngsters learning about it we hope that the message will reach the wider community and that we will see fewer incidents this Guy Fawkes Night.”
