500 Days to go

19 March 2018

The 8th March signaled that there were 500 days until the 24th World Scout Jamboree opens in the USA.

Wokingham District has 7 young people attending out of the 72 that were selected from across the Country back in December where over 200 Young people attended a special camp to find the lucky 72.

The selection process was only the start of their very exciting journey towards the Jamboree, as not only having to make new friends, learn new skills they have to raise over £3950 to pay for themselves and less able Scouting members to attend.

A few weeks ago the 7 arranged a quiz night to kick start their fundraising for 2018 and the evening saw 8 teams pit their skills over 10 rounds of questions which included General knowledge, music, sport and of course Scouting.

I am sure we will hear more from the 7 members over the coming months.
