Weʼre raising £1,000 to Send Abigail Blyfield to World Scout Jamboree 2019
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.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I have been selected to represent East Lancashire Scouts at the Worldwide Jamboree in 2019 in America. This is the opportunity of a lifetime and I am really excited (and scared!) about being part of this experience. To pay for the trip I need to fund raise approx. £3,800 to pay for this trip. A big part of my fundraising plan is not one but twelve challenges over the year that will test me physically, mentally and to contribute to my local community. I have set myself 12 challenges detailed below that I am going to complete in 2018 – this is now the second phase of fundraising, in addition to the below I have completed numerous scout led activities, cake stalls, bag packs and running a Tattoo Stall at Edenfield Fete. I will send out regular updates to people to see how am I doing against these goals. All donations (small and large) will be gratefully received and help me to attend the World Jamboree 2019.
