I'm Leila and I'm really proud to have been selected to represent the UK and Bromley District Scouts at the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia USA in 2019.
Attending the 2019 World Scouts Jamboree will be a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with other Scouts from all four corners of the world and will help me forge long lasting friendships with others who are from diverse backgrounds.
The World Scout Jamboree is a huge scouting event that happens once every 4 years in a different country. It is attended by 40,000+ Scouts from over 150 countries, so to be able to represent the UK is an amazing opportunity. It will be jointly hosted by the Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada, and the Scout Association of Mexico, and take place 22nd July- 2nd August 2019.
I will be working with the rest of the Contingent to raise over £3,800 each over the next 18 months. The fee will contribute to my attendance at the event but also contributes to Scouts from other less fortunate countries allowing them to attend, supporting the aim of the Jamboree ‘Unlock a New World’.
If you would like to learn more about the event, make sure to check out the World Scout Jamboree page here.
Any donations, big or small would be gratefully accepted.
