Last week the “York Jamboree Group” went to 6 showings of the York Scout and Guide Gangshow to sell our pens, badges and carabinier key rings. It was a great show and we raised lots of money, with a lot of thanks to the stewards at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre. It was tiring work, as shows went on till nearly 10 o’clock in the evening, but well worth it for the amount that we have raised! Thank you to everyone who donated, from those who bought one pen, to those who bought 5 badges!!!
In other news, the unit 48 leaders went on a training weekend last weekend. They found out many details about our trip, one of the most exciting was that after the jamboree itself (as you can see in the photo above) we will stay with Japanese families on Tokushima Island! Tokushima Island sounds like a very interesting place, from the huge bridge to the mainland and the whirlpools that form beneath it, to the mountains and the great gorges that run through the centre of the Island. We can’t wait to experience Japanese life there!
