Lola has been lucky enough to have been selected for this amazing opportunity. The World Scout Jamboree only happens once every four years. She will be part of a gathering of up to 50,000 Scouts from all around the world, all attending the 2019 World Jamboree in West Virginia.
Lola is taking part in a 6km Mud Run this month to help raise some of her personal funding.
So far Lola has raised money by looking after Beaver Scouts on a sleepover, selling cakes and badges, helping at a Christmas craft fair and leading the scouts family campfire evening.
Lola has had a very busy year attending training camps and unit days out in preparation for the Jamboree. The selected Scouts and Explorers from Richmond also have the task of raising £16,000 jointly. Some of this money has been raised by Bag packing at all the local supermarkets, selling Sausage sizzles, delivering leaflets, running stalls at local fairs and holding raffles, but they still have a way to go.
Any donations will be gratefully received and Lola sends a big thank you to everyone that has donated so far.
