Weʼre raising £3,500 to Help fund my attendance at World Scout Jamboree as a leader for 45 Scouts from Wiltshire. As a group we have to raise £200k between us
- Swindon, UK
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.
Every 4 years there is a World Scout Jamboree. In a childs scouting life they only get one oppotunity to attend a jamboree. The next one is the 24th and will be in West Virgina in North America. It is a joint run event between American, Canadian and Mexican scout federations and will bring together nearly 50000 young people and leaders on one site.
In Wiltshire we are talking 45 scouts (they will be aged between 14 and 18 when they attend) with 5 leaders on this ‘one in a lifetime trip’ over 3 weeks in August 2019.
Each one of us needs to fundraise £4000 each to cover all the costs of the event, travel etc.
This unfortunately is one of the highest feees in the world as we (the UK contingent) provide solidarity funding to less developed countries to make it as cheap as possible for them to attend.
This page is my personal attempt to fundraise (i will be using other methods) with anything over £4000 going to others in my unit (as an entire unit we need to raise £200,000!!!)
so please give generously and follow us on Facebook and Twitter @WSJWiltshire
