In his role as a Scout Ambassador, Warwick Davis left the US set of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and his co-star Angelina Jolie and travelled to the Isle of Wight where he met up with 66 scouts chosen from each of the 23 scout troupes on the Isle of Wight.

Warwick was invited to the Isle of Wight by Lady Grylls, the mother of adventurer Bear, and came to the Hovertravel terminal to meet with the scouts, and to go on board a hovercraft to learn how they work – part of the scouting Air Activities – Flight Badge.

Chief Scout Bear then suggested that Warwick might like to become an ambassador for the organisation.
