Hi and thank you for clicking on my JustGiving link!
My name is David Ingledew and as well as working in IT (Print Solutions Team @ DTP Group) I’m also very actively involved in Scouting with a busy Scout group in York [1st Huntington (All Saints) Scouts].
Every 4 years there is a World Jamboree for Scouts, where over 35,000 scouts come from over 200 countries and take part in this amazing 12 day event. In July 2019 the 24th event is being hosted in West Virginia at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, a 14,000 acre site roughly the size of York.
Jamboree’s are a chance to bring together people young and older, promote mutual understanding and help them develop leadership and life skills while experiencing amazing activities The theme of this event is “Unlock a New World”
To deliver this there will be up to 9000 members of an International Service team (~750 from the UK), and I have been invited to join them after a 2 stage application process.
My exact role over there is as yet unknown, but may draw on my IT Experience, or permits to teach Target Shooting or Archery…..or something completely different!
As a volunteer there is a cost of £3000 for the trip to include all travel, food and a shared tent!; It was noted people must think we are mad to take 3 weeks off from our annual leave, pay/raise up money and then do any job that is required of us at any time of the day when we get there but the rewards are the young people, the confidence they build and their enjoyment as well as meeting lots of new friends.
If anyone can help out with a donation of any size, it would be much appreciated!
