I have heard about this young man Ewan who lives in North East Lincolnshire, who has been selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree in Japan 2015. He one of only a few from around the UK to be selected and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for.
To get this far, he has already had to compete with his fellow Scouts in a series of challenges which tested different qualities such as leadership, scouting knowledge and all things necessary for the World Scout Jamboree.
This trip involves a whole array of activities from exploring the city of Tokyo, spending days and nights with a Japanese family, exploring different aspects of Japanese culture and of course the camp, where over 30,000 scouts of many nationalities come together and make friends by completing different activities together, and generally socialising.
And now to his final challenge to get there. He has to raise £3,295 to cover the cost and I have heard that he has planned all sorts of activities to raise this money.
One of his own unique ideas is the Origami Crane project. The project involves him creating 1,000 origami paper cranes for peace and he will make a paper crane for a donation of just £1 which I understand, will be taken to Japan and the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.
In addition to the Origami Crane project, he is also intending to walk, cycle and canoe around Rutland Water later in the year which will be just short of 3 marathons.
This is one incredible young man and he needs your help to achieve his goal of attending the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan in 2015.
If you feel that you as an individual or your company could support this young man in some way, then please use our Contact Form to get in touch and I will pass your details on to him and his father.
As a former Scout myself, I thank you for anything that you can do.
