Scout Jamboree - Louis fudraising page

I am attending the 25th World Scout Jamboree in South Korea and am working hard to fundraise for this epic international adventure in global development.

I need to raise £4,100 to attend, and around two-thirds of this goes to fund other poorer young people from across the globe so that they can participate too.

Thank you for your support!
