The York group of Jamboree participants have been quite busy recently.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to run our planned japanese evening but luckily we were offered the opportunity to provide refreshments at the Scout Archery and Shooting competitions in York over the last 2 Saturdays.
Both were very succesful despite the weather not being great. I think it helped us sell more hot drinks to keep everyone warm! The weather was much better the second week but a downpour before the end of the afternoon made sure we kept to tradition and got wet on a fundraiser – we’re used to it now!
Over the last few months we’ve also been building up to our jamboree raffle. Our 2 main prizes were an iPad mini and a beautiful Japanese print worth almost £300, donated by the Japanese Print Shop in York. Our other prizes included days out, hampers and lots of other lovely gifts.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated prizes or bought tickets – you helped us raise an incredible £1,300 altogether!
