    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Scouting has always has been a part of my life. I started going along to Beavers when I was 6yrs old and progressed through Cubs to Scouts. I am very proud to be the 4th generation of my family to be part of the Scouting movement and follow my Great Uncle to an international event. Throughout my life in scouting I have become more confident at things. Last year I successfully helped in the campaign for an Explorer group to start in Moffat and became one of the group's founding members in January 2018.

    Last August, I heard about the World Scout Jamboree and as I am very adventurous I got very excited and filled in a long application to say that I was interested. I got invited to go to a selection weekend at Culzean Castle where they assessed all the applicants. When I got the news that I had been selected as one of the 750 out of 450 000 scouts in the UK to go to the Jamboree I was over the moon about it! Before we head out to America, there will be a number of camps and get-togethers with scouts from the regional unit and from all over Scotland.

    This camp has lot of benefits for me because I get to have the chance to meet new friends, who could end up being life long friends. It will also benefit my local community when I come back. I will be able to tell my scout/explorer unit about what happened and teach them new games from around the world.

    Part of the money I raise will go towards paying for another scout, from a developing country to attend the event too!

    Beyond Borders...Beyond Limits.. Beyond Expectations !

    To raise sponsorship I have set myself a challenge to walk the West Highland Way!!

    Please Sponsor Me... just click donate

    The West Highland Way stretches 96 miles from Milngavie to Fort William and climbs over 14,000ft. I plan to walk this with my Mum in July and we will be camping on route. We hope to do this in 7 days, but it might take a couple of days longer if (when!) our legs and feet suffer. Watch out for my updates!

      resently i have partisapated in the Blair Atholl Jamborette 2018 at Blair Atholl Castle in Perthshire. It was over 2 weeks, with diffrent activaties and home hospitality. Our patrol had french canadians from Québec, and for home hospitality we had to bring back one of them to live in our house for 3-4 days. I meet up with Rory, who went with me to blair atholl, and his guest and showed them around Moffat and Glasgow which they enjoyed. at the end of their stay we tuck them back up to Edinburgh where they go the plane home to Cannida.

      Last night the walkers made it over halfway and spend the night at Tyndrum. Today they made it past Bridge of Orchy and are camping at the Invoraran Hotel. Tomorrow is a lovely walk over Rannoch Moor to Glencoe, which should be spectacular in this weather.
