Hiya and thank you for visiting !!!
I am extremely privileged to have been selected to join the Greater North London join the United Kingdom Scouting Organisation to attend the World Scout Jamboree in 2019 to be held in North America.
The World Scout Jamboree occurs every four years and is attended by young people from over 30 countries across our world. I will be attending the 24th event located in West Virginia, America. The theme of the summit is unlocking a new world and global sustainability, raising awareness for everybody to balance the needs of today whilst protecting the rights of future generations of children to meet their own needs also.
Furthermore, this amazing event, and the two years leading up to it, is a chance to learn more about global scouting and cultures, make new livelong friends, develop my leadership skills as well as enjoy some exhilarating activities along the way and at the camp itself.
To attend the World Scout Jamboree, my personal target is to raise £4,100. In the Greater London North Group, which I am part off, we work and support each other to raise our targets. I am proud that also some of the funds will go towards helping Scouts in poorer countries, so they can attend this global event also.
Raising the immense sum needed will be a worthwhile challenge in its own right and I have planned many ideas and started some, including: car washing and odd jobs, carol singing, bag packing and cake sales to name a few. I have also set myself a challenge of climbing the three highest peaks in the United Kingdom in just three days.
Thank you for your support,
Yours in Scouting,
