World Scout Jamboree 2019 fundraising

16 May 2018

Scout Gabby and fellow Explorer Scout Ellie, have embarked on various fundraising activities after their selection to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, USA next year.

They joined forces to run a cake stall outside Pocklington Arts Centre recently, alongside their own campaigns. Gabby’s next fundraiser is an afternoon tea event held at Bishop Wilton Village Hall on Sunday 20 May between 2pm and 4pm. She has drafted in some of her friends to provide live entertainment. The cost of the tea is £5 for an adult and £3 for children. The tea includes tea/coffee/squash, sandwiches, and cakes. Call 07926 174864 to book a place.

The World Scout Jamboree takes place every 4 years and sees over 40,000 Scouts from across the globe get together.

Members of the Pocklington Dolphins Swimming Club, which is based at the Francis Scaife Centre, are trying to ‘Swim the Atlantic’ to raise funds for Gabby. They are hoping to swim 4,000 miles to help raise £4,000 – the amount Gabby needs to accrue to attend the World Scout Jamboree.

Any group or organisation that would like to support Gabby’s campaign can visit to donate to her cause.
