Weʼve raised £130 to help fund an International Friendship Scout Camping Trip to Austria for 4 Scouts and 1 Explorer Scout from 1st Brora Scouts
- Brora, United Kingdom
- Funded on Friday, 24th March 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

International friendship is the theme of this proposed trip to a Scout Camp in Austria, Summer 2017. It is hoped that 4 Scouts and 1 Explorer Scout from 1st Brora Scouts will be able to participate in this trip where they will meet up to 1,000 other Scouts from all over the World. They will make friends with other Scouts which could last for many years to come. They will learn about other nation's ways of 'being Scouts', their customs, schooling, food and language. It will be a truly wonderful, international education!
Each of the Scout's families are paying over £600 each towards the trip for their individual children, however, that still leaves a shortfall of about £400 per Scout! In addition of travel costs from the far north of Scotland to Austria, and their accommodation costs for two weeks, it is hoped that the 1st Brora Scouts will be able to make a number of unique trips and visits whilst in Austria. The Troop are undertaking lots of fundraising events over the next 6 months but had the idea of crowdfunding to give them a little start - the tiniest amount raised will give them a wonderful base to grow from.
