Bexley resident Ella Fox has been selected to represent the UK as part of a team delivering the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia next summer.

The event brings together 45,000 Scouts from across the world to experience international cultures and celebrate the Scouting principle: to create a better world.

Ella said: “This is going to be my first World Scout Jamboree and I am very much looking forward to going to help out scouts from across the world and learning new life skills.”

Chief Scout Bear Grylls said: “Congratulations to Ella and all the other UK volunteers who have been selected to support scouts at the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, USA.

“While lots of people know that scouting helps young people learn the skills they need for life they often don’t realize that adult volunteers learn just as much as our young members.

“The Jamboree is a great example of this.”
