Hello and welcome to my fundraising site. My name is Georgia Montgomery. I am an Explorer Scout with the Weymouth East Scout Group in Dorset, England.
….about the Jamboree
I have been selected as part of the group to represent Dorset at the 24th World Scout Jamboree. The Jamboree will be held in West Virginia in the U.S.A. on the 22nd July 2019. More countries will be represented at the Jamboree than the Olympics!
By attending this event, I will get the chance to meet Scouts from around the world. I will experience new adventures, cultures and friendships which will have a positive impact not only on scouting but also my local community.
For me to be able to take part I need to raise a large sum of money over the next 15 months, this money goes towards; attending the event, uniform, training, travel, accommodation and provides the experience of a lifetime, not only for me, but also for Scouts from less fortunate countries to also take part.
I will be working hard to fundraise the money with my Scout Group, and with the other scouts selected from the Weymouth and Portland District but would very much appreciate it if you could provide a donation to help support me with the overall cost, however large or small – any help would be gratefully received.
…about the Fundraising
