Pregnant Kate's day out with the Scouts

by hellomagazine.com

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, will visit a newly formed Scout group on Tuesday. While there she will spend time with the youngsters as they learn more about the Scout Association's "Better Prepared" campaign and helping them to learn sign language.

The pregnant royal is a regular volunteer with the worldwide organisation which has its roots in Britain, and has previously been credited with increasing membership.

Kate's day visit to Poplar in East London will see her working with the Beavers, the youngest members of the Scout Association, as they work towards their Disability Awareness badge. Kate will then hand out the badges to those Beavers who successfully complete the tasks.

The "Be Prepared" campaign aims to find more adults to volunteer across the country in order to get the 40,000 youngsters on waiting lists around the country into groups.

In March last year Kate proved herself to be a dab hand at breadmaking when she joined a Scout group for an adventure-filled day in the Lake District, before less than a month later attended the National Review of Queen's Scouts at Windsor Castle.

Kate announced in January 2013 that she was a volunteer for the Scout Association, leading to total membership rising by more than 11,500 - record levels. Nearly 3000 adults signed up as volunteers between 2012 and 2013, one of the biggest rises in decades for the organisation.

Kate has becoming one of the growing members of flexible volunteers who, because of other commitments, help when they can rather than every session.
