Weʼre raising £500 to help towards my adventure to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia in July 2019

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.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In July 2019 I leave the UK to spend 3 weeks with 49,999 Scouts and Scout Leaders from all over the world for the 24th World Scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, West Virginia, USA.
I was selected to be part of the International Service Team representing UK Scouting back in April this year and I am currently waiting to find out what Jamboree job I have been assigned and consequently what part I will play in giving all those thousands of International Scouts a Jamboree experience to remember!
As I volunteer with Scouts I have to pay my own way for this adventure.The money I raise will go towards my journey plus help fund a Jamboree places for young people from less affluent countries.
I have been busily fundraising for the last few months and I have many plans to raise the rest of the funds needed with Quiz Nights and Trading Posts. But I know not everyone can get to Kent to take part in such events. Therefore I opened this Crowd Funding page so if you couldn't make it to a Quiz Night, but wanted to help my cause you could do so!
Any donations will be gratefully received!
And I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all when I get back!
