WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE - Beyond Borders, Beyond Limits, Beyond Expectations
I am very proud and honoured to have been selected by Hampshire, as one of the 144 Scouts and Explorers to be forming part of the UK contingent, representing the UK Scouting Association at the 24th World Scout Jamboree.
This amazing event will be jointly hosted by the United States of America, Canada and Mexico, and will be held at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, USA.
This is an amazing opportunity for over 45,000 young people from across the world, who all share a common interest, to come together – forgetting about conflict and disagreements and uniting as one big international scouting family, supporting the Jamboree’s aim of “Unlocking a New World” for generations to come. Enabling the chance to enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors, interact with others, gain confidence and giving each and everyone of us the opportunity to reach our full potential. The Jamboree itself lasts 12 days, plus some events either side - making it a 3 week expedition.
***3 YORKSHIRE PEAKS - BOOM - COMPLETED!!!!!!!***
I DID IT!! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SPONSORED ME FOR THE YORKSHIRE 3 PEAK CHALLENGE - I WALKED 25 MILES, CLIMBED OVER 5,000 FT OVER THE 3 HIGHEST PEAKS IN THE YORKSHIRE DALES - MY CHALLENGE WAS TO DO IT IN 12 HOURS - I MANAGED IT IN 10 HOURS & 20 MINUTES!!
A "big thank you" to Auntie Elizabeth & David who walked with me, and also to Mum, Dad, Uncle Steve, Mary and my brother Joseph who were the support team. Posted Pics in gallery!
Off line donations added too, which include money raised on sponsored bike ride, payment art, raffle and sweetie stall sales at farmers markets
I'm will still be involved with numerous other fundraising activities - so watch this space, as I’ll add photo’s to my gallery as and when I complete activities!!
The Jamboree will be fantastic to meet young people from all over the world, there will be young people attending from more countries than were represented at the last Olympics, these also include scouts & Explorers from less wealthy countries, who will be able to attend with the help from my fundraising efforts. So I'd be very grateful for any donations to get those from less fortunate countries to this amazing event too.
