AJ2025 April 2024 Appeal

The Lord Baden-Powell Society (LBPS) is rallying supporters to ensure every young Australian Scout can access the transformational experiences that only a Jamboree can offer, irrespective of their financial background.

It is the dream of many young people to attend a Jamboree for the life-long social skills, friendships and enormous fun that such an experience generates. I am certain, that many of you would have experienced the Australian Jamboree at one point or another.

The Jamboree Appeal was instituted by the Lord Baden-Powell Society purely for the purpose of distributing funds to those going through financial hard times.

So, right now, more than ever, many Australian families are being affected by the current high living costs. It is for this reason, that our Appeal today is so important to many.

This month, the LBPS is focusing its fundraising efforts on the upcoming 26th Australian Jamboree AJ2025 – taking place in Queensland in January next year. This date is fast approaching!  So, do not wait or think about it, pick up the phone and call Rita to place your donation with a credit card. It’s easy and quick.

This Easter, please consider making a donation instead of buying chocolate Easter eggs. Sorry Cadbury! This suggestion will not only keep you slim and healthy, but also happy in knowing that you are helping a young Scout in need.
