Hello. My name is Emer and I have been chosen as one of 36 Scouts from South Yorkshire to represent  the Don District association at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan next year! This is a fantastic, once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with the greater scouting community and visit the other side of the world.

The theme for this Jamboree, which is held every four years is "A Spirit of Unity" which represents such themes as unity, friendship, co-operation, harmony and peace, tenants the worldwide Scouting movement strives to emulate and teach its members.

Along with the opportunity to meet with Scouts from all over the world, we will also be spending time with a Japanese family and visiting Tokyo and areas of cultural and historical significance.

In the spirit of caring and support for the wider international Scouting movement during our fundraising efforts we as the Don District representatives will also be raising money for a group of Scouts from Uganda. Our efforts will allow them to travel  and experience this fantastic opportunity that without our support they would never be able to realise.

In total i am aiming to raise a sum of £3200 over the next 18 months.This will cover our transport and living costs, equipment and other expenses while we are away for the three weeks along with donations to the Ugandan Scouts Association.

This is a large amount of money to raise and as part of my effort  to reach our goal Myself and my Dad are undergoing a challenge. From Sheffield to Tokyo is 7992 Km so together we aim to Cycle this distance over the next year, So if you feel able to help us with a donation however small we would be so very grateful. We shall be keeping people updated on our progress weekly through my Facebook fundraising page

and through this page too.

Arigatau.
