Story

World Scout Jamboree 2019

I'm very privileged to have been selected as a member the Somerset Scout Contingent for the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, USA, in 2019. It's a real honour to be able to take part in this worldwide gathering. The World Scout Jamboree takes place every four years and provides a unique opportunity for over 40,000 young people, from 150 countries, to live together and share their values and culture.

To gain the most from this experience, I will be attending many training camps and preparation activities between now and next June and raising £3,995 to attend. Part of this cost helps to give young people, from developing countries, a chance to attend, where the cost would normally be out of their financial reach.

To raise the money, I'm carrying out a variety of fundraising events and seeking grants and sponsorship from local businesses. I will be really grateful for any extra help to reach my target by the end of June 2019.

Thank you in advance for your support to help turn my fundraising goal into a reality. This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I'm determined to make the most of it.

    Just received my first donation from one of the organisations I wrote to in half term! Every bit helps. I'm busy preparing some fundraising games for 1st West Coker Scouts Summer Fair on Sunday 24 June. If I'm lucky, my Mum might help me make larges quantities of West Virginia Butter Fudge to sell! Tried it out at the last coffee morning and it went down well.

    Over half term I've been busy writing letters to local companies and researching grant-giving organisations to approach for donations.
