    Story

    In November 2017, I was fortunate enough to be selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) in 2019. We initially had to apply for a place, and then attend a selection weekend - the weather was really horrid! We had lots of challenges, games and activities that we had to do, that enabled me to demonstrate my knowledge, teamwork and leadership skills. I am the only Scout to have been selected from Bearsted, and am very proud to be representing Maidstone East, specifically Haydock Scouts Troop.

    The WSJ in an international event bringing the World's young people together. For 10 days, we will work together, discover each other’s cultures and faiths, learn new skills and take part in adventurous activities. The event promotes world peace, mutual respect and understanding. This will enable us to grow as global citizens to tackle some of the biggest issues facing the world today. Over 200 different countries will be represented as WSJ. The Jamboree theme is "Unlock A New World".

    The Jamboree is very special, an opportunity like no other for me and every single one of the 45,000 participants. The Jamboree provided opportunities to develop new skills that can be applied to other aspects of our lives as well as increasing international understanding within the Scouting world.

    Each participant needs to raise £3945 in order to attend. A significant portion of each UK participant fee 's is used to assist Scouts from the Developing Countries to attend, further enriching the Jamboree and giving us the chance to meet people we would never have been able to meet before. I feel ridiculously lucky to have been selected, but this number is a daunting prospect. Even though my twin brother was not selected, he has still been helping me fundraise. We have been fundraising for the last 10 months doing car washing and baby-sitting, and we have been making sweetie cones, fairy light bottles to sell. Even my Nanny and Auntie are helping by knitting pom-pom scarves and baby blankets for the Christmas events we have planned!

    Even with this, we still have a way to go. Any amount you are able to contribute, not matter how small would be very gratefully received

    Thank you so much for your support
