Scouting Jamboree to Poland

My strapping 15 (16 in January) year old son Josh is hoping to travel to Poland with his fellow explorers from the scout group in July 2020. Josh first joined the scouting movement aged 5 and for the last 7 years has been with his current group, the 15th Norwich Air Scouts. As you probably know, each year, Scouts from all over the world get together at a huge Jamboree and this year Josh has been invited to attend the European Jamboree in Poland.
 He needs to raise as much of the funds as possible and has already organised lots of activities to help him reach his target. But now he has decided to wax his (very) hairy legs in order to do it. Josh is your typical sporty teenager and plays rugby for his local club and now at county level so this will be very painful as the hairs are long but he believes “no pain no gain”! The waxing will take place in March and photographic and video evidence will be provided.
As parents we know that being part of groups and clubs like the Scouting movement really help form young people into the responsible adults of tomorrow and so we would really like to help Josh raise the money to attend the Jamboree. Please can you help him get there? All funds and words of encouragement very gratefully received. Thank you from me (Mel, his mum) and Josh.
