Scouts raise £40k to attend event in USA

A local organisation has hit its fundraising target to attend a massive event taking place next year.

The Scouts Association Isle of Man has raised £40,000, meaning members can now go to West Virginia in America in 2019.

The World Scout Jamboree is held every four years and sees more than 30,000 scouts from over 150 countries come together for three weeks of camping and international bonding.

Recently, an abseiling event in partnership with 3FM raised £2,000 to help towards the target.
