Weʼre raising £2,000 to help Scouts go to Nepal

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 April 2006 a group of 35 Scouts, Explorer Scouts and leaders from Lewisham North Scout District went to Nepal for a two week period. While in Nepal the group embarked on a week long trek that took them to an altitude of 3193 meters. The group trekked through stunning hills and snow peaked mountains before returning to the tranquil lake side city of Pokhara. During the second week the group made its way back to the hustle and bustle of the capital Kathmandu where the group donated over 80 illustrated children’s books to a Non Government Funded school called EPHC (Education Protection and Help for Children).
Since then Lewisham has sent Scouts and Explorers to Nepal in 2008, 2010 and 2014. We intend to send another group in April 2019.
As in previous years, part of the challenge our young people face is to raise funds to finance the trip and their donations to Education Protection and Help for Children.
Send our Scouts to Nepal!
