What is crowdfunding?

I have been a Scout since I was 7, starting as a Beaver and has progressed through the ranks and am Know an Explorer Scout and a Young Leader. I recently won a place at the 24th World Scout Jamboree. This will be a trip of a lifetime for me and and it will be a great Honour to represent my Unit and the UK at this Jamboree so I would dearly love to go.

Raising the funds is a monumental task so all Donations would greatly received.To date I have been selling at Car Boot, stalls at Christmas fayres, Bag Packing, Coin Collecting and have hosted a Film Afternoon. I also helped my local lions Club run a Santas’ Grotto for a sponsorship donation.

The World Scout Jamboree is a huge scouting event that happens once every 4 years in a different country. It is attended by 50,000+ Scouts from over 200 countries. The Jamboree will take place at Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, West Virginia, USA, hosted by the Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada, and the Scout Association of Mexico, and take place 22nd July- 2nd August 2019.

Some of the Funds raised for the Jamboree will also be used to help fund Scouts around the World.

    Things going well, steady progress and we have raised about 30% of my total in all from my original target. So we have £2535 left to raise. I am off to Normandy in May cycling the Battle sites and War Memorials, finishing at Pegasus Bridge. In September I am taking Part in a sponsored walk in London. We are walking from Richmond Bridge to Tower Bridge along the Thames foot path. Taking in 20 Bridges and walking approx 22 miles. If you would like to sponsor me all Donations would be much appreciated. Thanks Sam

I am 16 and a Scout since the age 7 and am now an Explorer. I am a young leader at a local Scout pack which is great fun. I have been on many camps and was lucky enough to go to Denmark in 2017(wow). I have taken part in many different activities, the muddier the better.
