A Fittleworth Scout is raising £3,000 so she can travel to Yamaguchi City, Japan for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree attended by 3,000 Scouts.
Maddie Murtagh, 13, is hoping she will get there with the help of her last fundraising event – a Wild West Murder Mystery evening.
I am very proud to have been selected for this brilliant opportunity
She will be one of four Scouts who will be representing the Petworth and Pulborough district at the jamboree in Japan.
“Scouts from all over the world will discuss and think about global issues such as peace, and reflect upon their lives,” Maddie said.
“I am very proud to have been selected for this brilliant opportunity.”
Maddie was one of the first Cubs to join the lst Bury pack and she now attends the lst Fittleworth Scouts.
She is not only raising money for her own trip, but also funds to contribute to Scouts from less-fortunate countries.
