Astronaut Tim Peake has highlighted the valuable work being done by the Scouts to improve people's lives in Dumbarton.

Tim, who is the Scout ambassador, was speaking at the relaunch of A Million Hands, a campaign which raises awareness of several key themes chosen by the young people themselves.

This includes protecting the environment, ending homelessness, supporting refugees and displaced children and promoting kindness in every community.

The Scouts are also renewing their commitment to supporting better mental health for all and understanding disability.

Tim said: "Over the last one hundred years, the issues we’ve tackled have evolved and changed, but our young people’s drive to make a positive impact remains as strong as ever.

"As Scouts, we’re always striving to leave the world a little better than we found it. Scouts are not bystanders. We play our part to create a better society and a better future for our precious planet."
