Weʼre raising £2,000 to help the young people of Somerset to take part in the World Scout Jamboree
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.
As part of the World Scout Jamboree 2019 my fellow leaders and I will be taking 36 young people from across Somerset and Wiltshire to participate in the 24th World Scout Jamboree. A great deal of training and preparation will be taking place over the next 18 months. We aim to make this opportunity available to all regardless of background or wealth and therefore aim to fundraise as much of the participation fee as possible. Please give whatever you feel able to in confidence that your money will help to improve and enrich the lives of the young people. Participating in an event such as the world scout jamboree will be a once in a lifetime opportunity, an unforgettable experience and give the young people unique skills and accomplishments that will be of benefit throughout their lives to themselves and to society.
A World Scout Jamboree takes place every four years and in 2019 will be attended by over 35,000 young people from 168 countries at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, USA.
