Weʼre raising £1,019 to get Luke to the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia in 2019

What is crowdfunding?

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.


Luke was recently selected to represent Tunbridge Wells and Kent Scouts at the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, America in 2019. This is Luke, below, on the left, featured in his local paper.

Here's his story...

This is an amazing opportunity and I’m so proud to be an ambassador for Tunbridge Wells and Kent scouts. I would love to visit America as it would be a great opportunity for me to experience scouting in a different continent! I have never been to America and to go with the scouts would be amazing. The theme for the Jamboree is about unlocking a new world and scouting has already allowed me to unlock many experiences and adventures. I love a challenge and have done many awesome activities over my 9 years in scouting but going to the world’s largest Jamboree in America would give me a once in a lifetime experience.

Travelling to America will build my character, boost my confidence and allow me to try new challenges and learn what the scouts of America are like. Hopefully a trip like this will allow me to do even more exciting and adventurous things both with the scouts and beyond. Having been a Beaver, Cub, Scout, and now Explorer shows how much I love the scouting network and scouting has shown me the value of working hard and to not quit even when things get tough; but most importantly scouting has been about making friends and meeting lots of new and interesting people. I would be thrilled to carry on meeting new people from so many different backgrounds in America and getting to know them and their cultures better.

I now need to raise £2019 to help me get to the USA in 2019! At the moment I’m washing cars and selling cakes and hot dogs and planning quizzes to help raise some of the money I need, however if you were able to provide any additional contribution I would be hugely grateful.

    I've now raised over £1000 offline (doing some more car washing) so I've adjusted my total on JustGiving to reflect that. Thanks for all your support so far.

    Last weekend me and Frankie walked over 28 miles completing the Tunbridge Wells circular walk in just over 12 hours. It was hard work and my feet hurt when I finished (but the BBQ supper helped me recover!) - It was a great achievement and thank you to everyone who sponsored me to help raise over £150 towards my WSJ target.

    Spent the morning washing cars at the Scouts Jumble Sale at St Marks Hall. Thank you to everyone who came along to get their cars washed. Car washing raised £70 towards WSJ and thanks to everyone who helped me this morning
