Fundraising for jamboree

Scouts from Northamptonshire are fundraising to pay for a trip to Japan.

The 36 Scouts have set themselves a target of £2,995 so they can go to the 23rd World Scout Jamboree, which is being held in Japan in July.

One of those fundraising is Ben Prestidge, 14, from Wellingborough, who said: “My motivation for going to the 23rd World Scout Jamboree is that I am fascinated by different cultures and I know that the experience and knowledge that I will gain will stay with me for the rest of my life.”
