Story

I have been one of the few lucky scouts to have been selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree in the USA in 2019. To be able to attend I need to raise the funds myself.

This is an amazing opportunity and a once in a lifetime experience. The Jamboree is where Scouts from around the world come together to create a global community, gaining new experiences, meeting new people, challenging yourself and overcoming fears. For more information on the Jamboree take a look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHLvQyw2Z5s

I have been a keen member of the Scouting Community since the age of just six when I started out at Beavers, moving through to Sea Cubs and now into the Sea Scouts. I aim to continue this journey through to explorers and then become a young leader and even have my own group one day. Attending the Jamboree would be an amazing experience for me to develop skills I can use within my journey in Scouting and into the adult world of work. I see this adventure giving me the opportunity to meet new people from across the world, share our experiences and be a good role model to the rest of my scout group, showing them if they try hard, they can accomplish lots of great things.

This is going to be a challenge, one which I look forward to completing. To help raise funds I will be organising many fundraising events throughout our local community- watch this space for what will happen next.

I do not want this just to be a trip but something I can experience and share with my local community on my return. Using my new skills and confidence to support others in need.

Thank you for your support.

    Thank you to everyone who has been helping and supporting me to raise funds for the Jamboree. I have been busy over the last few months mowing local lawns, selling donated items and have attended the Papworth Fete this weekend with a horse racing set.

    Just wanted to let you all know I organised a night out at a trampoline park for many young people in the local area. I was lucky enough to get a good deal on the exclusive hire and raised just over £200. Everyone seemed to have a great time too!! My next adventure is going to be running a refreshment stall at a local dog show and bag packing in a local supermarket.

I am trying to raise funds to attend the world scout jamboree in 2019. This really will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet with other scouts from around the world. A massive challenge to raise the large amount of money but I am determined to find ways to do it.
