Rotary Club President Bill Reading accompanied by Community and
Vocational Committee Chairman Kath Bromilow presented a cheque last week
at Yealand Village Hall for £500 to assist four young people who have
been selected by the Lancaster and Morecambe District Scouts (Lonsdale)
to represent the area at the World Scout Jamboree 2015 which is taking
place in Japan.
Wilkinson and Patrick Wilkinson are also undertaking fundraising
activities to finance the trip. Jamborees have been running every four
years since 1920 and enable young people to form friendships which will
last a life time, and from the experience develop skills and knowledge
to be good citizens in our local communities. The theme for the 2015
Jamboree is ‘Unity’.
