Muslim Scout Fellowship scoop award
The Muslim Scout Fellowship (MSF) has received national recognition at the British Muslim Awards.
The MSF is the official body for Muslim adult Scout volunteers, aiming to promote Scouting in the Muslim community.
The group were up against the likes of Dr Hany El-Banna, a leading figure in the UK Muslim community, at the prestigious awards ceremony (thediversityawards.info), and took home the Muslim in the Community gong.
The British Muslim Awards recognises a wide range of great achievements that cover various aspects of British society including business, charity, sport, arts and culture. The awards show, which took place in Manchester, aims to celebrate the significant role that Britain’s Muslims have in society.
Other award winners included double Olympic champion, Mo Farah (Best at Sport) and business mogul, James Caan (Entrepreneur of the Year).
Yousif Eltom, Chairman of The Muslim Scout Fellowship, commented: ‘The UK Muslim Scout Fellowship are delighted to be presented with the award for Muslims in the community as it shows recognition for the effort of the many leaders and volunteers who have supported Muslim Scouting for over a decade.
He continued, saying, ‘We thank The Scout Association and the County and District Commissioners who have welcomed [Muslim] Scouting, but most importantly the leaders and Members of the nearly 50 Muslim Scout Groups for their continued efforts.’
