Emily Brown is heading to Japan for the jamboree EMN-140826-061637001

Kettles will be boiled, cakes baked and scones buttered this Sunday to help a 15-year-old 
Explorer Scout get to the World Scout Jamboree in Japan.

Emily Brown is busy learning Japanese and practicing eating with chop sticks in anticipation of this trip of a lifetime next year.

The Jamboree only takes place once every four years and young Scouting members can only apply once to take part.

“I had to undertake a gruelling selection day to bag my place,” said Emily, who has been in Scouting since she was six years old.

“There was a variety of challenges to complete, which culminated in an interview.”

Emily was successful and will be part of the 18-strong Humberside contingent heading to Kirara-hama in the Yamaguchi Precinct.

While there, Emily and the other Scouts will have the opportunity to visit Hiroshima, 70 years after the nuclear bombing, when a large number of origami peace cranes will be placed.

But first, she needs to raise £3,295 to take part in the trip.

And her latest event takes place this Sunday, August 31, when she will be serving cream teas in The Moot Hall at Holton le Moor from 2pm to 5pm.
