The meeting was held at Old Ford Primary School in Bow in the East End and aims to bring Scouting to 200 of the most deprived parts of the country.

The movement, which has 446,000 youth members and already works in 70 of the 100 most deprived parts of the UK, will need to recruit 1,000 more adult volunteers to make the new groups viable.

Kate worked as a volunteer for the Scout Association when she and the Duke of Cambridge lived in Anglesey, North Wales, and this visit allowed her to get back into the swing of being an assistant.

The Duchess was invited to join a colony of Beaver Scouts for their weekly and participate in all of the activities including helping the children ice a cake blindfolded, cut up a chocolate bar with boxing gloves, learn the Scout Promise in sign language, and put on a wet suit while blindfolded.

These activities would help the children, aged between five and eight, at the 23rd Poplar Beaver Scout Colony Beavers, learn about life with disabilities and also earn a disability awareness badge.

Showing Kate around was Carlos Lopez-Plandolit, the Beaver Scout colony leader, who became a volunteer about a year ago after coming to Britain five years ago from Spain.
