Thomas has been selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree 2019 as part of the Essex contingent. He is one of 117 Scouts in Essex to be selected, from an initial 2000 applicants. Not only is he representing the County, but also the UK.
He is fundraising to help pay for the cost of the trip which is a total of £3800.00 per person. During the next 18 months Thomas will be organising various events both individually and jointly with other Scouts from the Billericay and Wickford District. There will be Curry Nights, Bakes Sales, Quiz Nights, to name but a few.
This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend a 12 day Jamboree, hosted by 3 nations - Canada, Mexico and the United States And is held at Summit Bechtel in West Virginia.
The Jamboree will help the young people develop five core skills of adventure, friendship, leadership, service and sustainability.
As well as spending 12 days at the Jamboree, the Scouts will also be visiting a City, such as New York or Washington and also spending time at a hosted hospitality venue. This will give them further opportunity to explore new locations, experience new cultures and develop as individuals.
Please give generously, to make this amazing experience happen!

I am 13 years old and I am a patrol leader at 2nd Wickford Scout Troop. During my time in Scouting, I have attended the Essex International Jamboree 2016 and visited Belgium for a week in 2017. Being a Scout has developed my confidence, independence and many other skills.
