What is crowdfunding?

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.

Hey there everyone!

I'm Benedict Long, an Explorer Scout form Istari ESU in Watton At Stone, looking for funds to help me to attend the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, 2019. This is truly an adventure of a lifetime and I am reaching out to all of you, the good people of the internet, in order to support me on this journey.

I have been involved in scouting for over 9 years now and it has truly made a huge difference to my life. It has taught me how to be resourceful, outgoing, and supportive and has left a large mark on me in all of its sections. The journey to being selected involved a competitive process which whittled the Hertford District particpants down to the four successful particicpants (including me) being invited to represent the district. But this is only the start, as I am required to raise £3,700 for this monumental event, larger even than the Olympics!

The money is to be raised over a Year and a half, with instalments at regular intervals. This fee doesn't just help me, it also goes to helping scouts from developing countries to access the exciting adventures that being on the Jamboree offers to them. To this end, I plan to raise money by bucket collections, bake sales, sponsered events and much more. You can keep in contact with my Jamboree Journey by following both our district and myself on social media:
