Broughton Gifford Scouts are off Stateside

Two Broughton Gifford Scouts have been selected to join the Wiltshire contingent at the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia in the US in the Summer of 2019. Twin brothers George and William Lister attended a selection weekend in early October with 109 others where they were tested on their scouting and teamwork skills. They were chosen to join the final team of 45 to represent Wiltshire and will join 39,998 other scouts from around the world in a week of activities, fun and festivities at the Summit Bechtel Reserve

They now need to get busy raising nearly £4,000 each to fund the trip (they are not only funding themselves, but also aiding a Scout from a developing nation to attend) so don’t be surprised if you see the odd fundraising event organised over the coming months. Clean car anyone….??
