EN student Oliver Righton is preparing to take part in one of the biggest festivals of all things Scouting at the European Jamboree next summer.

Oliver will be joining up with fellow Scouts from across Europe and a contingent from Canada at the two-week gathering in Poland.

They will take part in a whole range of activities including trips to Auschwitz and the Krakow salt mines and exploring the cultures of the various scout groups present.

Oliver, a former Bungay High student is looking for sponsorship to help cover the cost of the £1400 trip. He has already been bag packing in local supermarkets to kick-start the fundraising campaign.
