We congratulate them on being selected and offer the our full support as they prepare to attend this amazing life-changing international event.
We are seeking the support of the local community in helping them raise these funds over the next 18 months. If local organisations feel they would like to support them we would welcome their offers of help. It is a dauntng task but they will welcome your help. This can come through local charitable trusts offering donations towards the cost or from businesses offering opportunties for them to raise funds through, for example, bag-packing at supermarkets, or offering opportunities for them to raise funds at loacl community events such as local carnivals.
In addition they will be holding fund-raising events themselves, and they will welcome your support.
These young people have proved they deserve our support. by demonstrating their determination to represent their local community at an event which will see 50,000 scouts from all corners of this planet come together in the USA in 2019 to work for cooperation and understanding amongst young people who are united by their Scout Law and Promise.
