Weʼre raising £1,960 to help fund Alejandra to attend the World Scout Jamboree 2019 in the USA by running the Ealing mini-marathon on 29th September 2018.

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 be one of a group of Scouts representing UK Scouts at the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, USA in 2019. The World Scout Jamboree occurs once every 4 years and Scouts will therefore only get one chance to attend.
The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills. This will be an unique opportunity to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds (50,000 Scouts from 160 countries).
So far I have reached nearly half of the £3,900 total required but have £1,960 to go. The £3,900 covers my costs but also goes towards subsidising Scouts from low income countries so they may experience the Jamboree too. It's great that, through my fundraising, I am abIe to help young people across the world who are not as fortunate as I am.
I have been busy raising funds through Christmas card sales, cake sales, a jumble sale and also through receiving a Jack Petchey Foundation Young Achiever's Award.
My next fundraising venture is to run the Ealing mini-marathon (1 mile) in September 2018. Any sponsorship/donation, no matter how small, will help me get to this once in a lifetime trip next year.
Thank you for your help.
