A statement from The Scout Association
The Scout Association is devastated that Elliot Peacock, a fourteen-year-old Explorer Scout, sadly passed away yesterday afternoon (29 June). Elliot was taking part in a holiday to the Aosta Valley in Italy organised by Acorn Adventure, a company specialising in adventure-based trips.
We are working with Acorn Adventure to support the family, leaders and other young people involved in this very sad event.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Elliot, who was a member of the Pegasus Explorer Scout Unit which is linked to the 35th Glasgow Scout Group.
