BUSY scout George Scott is running out of space for badges on his Cubs uniform.

But unless they create some new ones, he should be fine now, as the Doncaster 10-year-old has now won all the badges available.

George, from Scaftworth Close, Bessacarr, was awarded his 33rd badge for skating,

It joins the list of previous awards ranging from map reading to equestrian activities.

He is the first member of the 58th Doncaster (Bessacarr) Bears to complete the task of winning all the badges.

The Willow Primary School pupil joined the group two years ago and says the equestrian badge was the toughest.

Ann Crooker, leader of the group, which meets at Cantley’s Hawthorne Primary School, said George had showed real determination and had completed many of the badges in his own time.

She said: “George is such a good all-rounder. This has never happened in this pack before.”

Dad Richard said he, mum Tricia and sister Rachel were all proud of what George had achieved.
