Chief Scout Honours “Lifesaver” Rachel

Rachel Coe, an Assistant Scout Leader at the 2nd Bramcote Scout Group, has been awarded the Chief Scout’s Commendation for Meritorious Conduct medal by Chief Scout, Bear Grylls.


Rarachel-medal-2chel was presented with her medal by Stuart Howells,  Assistant County Commissioner, at the Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service at Saint Michael and All Angels Parish Church in Bramcote on 13th November.

When her father suffered a massive heart attack whilst at home in December 2015, Rachel immediately commenced CPR and continued with this until the paramedics arrived. The hospital consultant advised that, had Rachel not continued with the CPR her father would not have made the amazing recovery which subsequently followed.

Rachel is pictured with her proud dad after the award ceremony and with Stuart Howells.

Many congratulations Rachel. We are all so proud of you!
