Story

In November 2017 I was really lucky to be selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) 2019. We had to apply for a place and were then invited to participate in a selection weekend that involved many challenges and games to examine and test our problem solving, teamwork and leadership skills.

The WSJ is a huge event in the Scouting calendar because it only comes around every four years; making it a once in a Scouting lifetime opportunity. It is an educational event that brings together young people from all round the globe to promote world peace, mutual respect and understanding. There is a wide variety of adventurous activities on offer with a focus on social interaction and everyday life within the different cultures attending.

There will be around 50,000 Scouts and leaders from over 200 countries. In 2019 the WSJ is to be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia in the United States of America from the 22nd July to the 2nd August. The event is being hosted by Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada, and Asociación de Scouts de México and the theme is ‘Unlock a New World.’

I have made so many new friends inside and outside my unit because of the WSJ and also Scouting in general. I am incredibly lucky to have this opportunity and I can’t wait for the adventure, friendships and memories not to mention the fun I know I will have.

To attend I have to raise £3,500 over the next 10 months. The money raised pays for me to go and also contributes towards the costs of Scouts from less advantaged countries to attend the WSJ. I have already started fundraising for my adventure both individually and with friends in my unit. This includes cake sales, bag packing, drive way sales, car boots and many more!

Please help our Scouting dreams become a reality.

    On 6th October we enjoyed a ceilidh in Kinoulton Village Hall. It was great fun and we raised £580.00. Thanks to my Group Scout Leader Sue for organising it. This brings my current total including the Just Giving donations to £2,069.62. Thanks to everyone who has supported me so far.

    Kinoulton Horticultural Show and Susanne had my banner out again...the donations box added another £12.00 to my fundraising. At the weekend I helped at the Nottinghamshire Bake Off which was organised as a fundraiser by the Mum of one of my Unit. Every Jamboree participant who helped got a share of the profits. I helped with the cake stall and the raffle and now have £145.00 to add to my fundraising. This is a photo of me with the winning cake...it was an amazing cake and an amazing day.

    Hickling Scarecrow Weekend I set up on another driveway and to my amazement made £183.00. I also helped cook and sell burgers and sausage dogs with my Scout Group and received a donation from them of £150.00. Susanne displayed my banner with a donations box next to the mess tent and that generated a further £17.00.
