World Scout Jamboree 2015 - Gemma Johnson

Japan 2015 World Scout Jamboree

My name is Gemma Johnson and I live in Eaton Bray. I've recently been selected as one of 300 volunteers to represent the UK at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan in 2015.

I applied to be a volunteer because I wanted to help young people have the once in a lifetime opportunity to meet Scouts from all over the world that I had in 2011 when I was chosen to be a participant in the 22nd Jamboree in Sweden.

My experience as a volunteer will be very different from when I went as a participant and the jobs that I do could be anything from running workshops, catering or cleaning toilets.

However, in order to attend, I need to raise about £2000 to cover my own costs and to subsidise those Scouts coming from poorer countries.

I will therefore be organizing various fundraising events over the coming months; please see my advert for more details on a treasure trail that I'm organising on May 3rd.

I am organising a quiz night on 6th September- more details to follow.

As well as this I am also collecting clothing, shoes and household linen so if you have any that you could donate, please get in touch to arrange collection.

Finally, if you shop online would you consider helping me to raise funds by following the simple steps to sign up to easyfundraising? By doing this you'll earn a donation every time you shop and it won't cost you a penny! My link is:

If you have any questions or can help in any other way please contact me: [email protected]

Thank you for your support,
Gemma Johnson
