Bear Grylls Reply to Our Postcards

Date: 21st Oct 2019 Author: Richard Williams

Between April and July, the Beavers and Cubs of GLMW wrote and sent around 2,500 Postcards to Bear. Each of them shared why they like being a Beaver and a Cub. Their ideas about what they would do if they were the Chief Scout were inspirational. One of the ideas is so good that we have made it the central theme to our GLMW Challenge for 2020. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at the 20in20 Challenge 

Connecting via the team at Gilwell, we delivered the Postcards to Bear in July and we have received a glowing response from Bear. You can hear him in his Video Reply. Please make sure that all the Beavers and Cubs you know that participated in the project with us get to see and hear the response.


Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
