A Hillside girl and academy pupil has been selected to take part in the World Scout Jamboree in July next year to represent the Hillside Scouts.

Molly Munro (13) is a member of the 1st Hillside Scouts and is thoroughly looking forward to the Jamboree which takes place in Japan.

The first World Scout Jamboree took place in London in 1920 and has continued since, always uniting Scouts and Guides with messages of peace and global understanding.

Between July 28 and August 8, 2015, 3,500 Scouts and Guides from across the UK will be joining others from around the world in Kirara-hama, Japan for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.

The theme of the jamboree will be ‘Wa’ meaning harmony, unity, friendship and peace allowing a ‘spirit of unity’ to share others’ cultures and faiths, take part in adventurous activities and grow as global citizens to tackle world issues.

UK Scouts and Guides are currently preparing for the jamboree, forming friendships, fund-raising and preparing so that when they return home, they will have developed skills and knowledge to act as global citizens keen positively affect their local communities and demonstrating commitment to Scouting and creating a better world.

In order for Molly to attend she must fund raise £3,500 for the trip. The Hillside Scouts have kindly given her £500 to get her started. Molly has a number of ideas such as coffee
