My story

[p]Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my fundraising page. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Why am I Fundraising? [/p][p]From a large scouting selection event I attended in April 2019. I was chosen to be one of the persons in a team of four lucky young scout members to take part on a challenging expedition.[/p][p]I feel extremely privileged and grateful to been given the opportunity to represent my home county ‘Kent Scouts’ on an international scale. [/p][p]So where are we going? [/p][p]The expedition is to Antarctica, we will be sailing from South America on an amazing tall ship called Bark Europa.[/p][p]The expedition is in celebration of 100 years since the great explorer ‘Shackleton’ took two scouts to Antarctica on his Quest expedition. So we are planning on doing again exactly 100 years later. This is why the expedition is called Request.[/p][p]We will be sailing to Antarctica whilst carrying out our own individual reseach projects. [/p][p]My project will be understanding how cold tempratures affect natural body functions e.g. heart rate, blood pressure, reaction time and breathing.To get this data I will be doing a simple physiological test among few other things. [/p][p]As a team we will also be planning a few other activities to help communities and the planet itself. Once we have confirmed these I will update you of these exciting details later on in my fundraising journey.[/p][p]How much do I need to raise? [/p][p]For me to go on this adventure of a lifetime, I have to fundraise approximately £5000. Unfortunately jetting of to Antarctica doesn’t come cheap! [/p][p]I am hoping to achieve this target by organising various events and challenges again more information about this will come later. [/p][p]Please can you help? [/p][p]I am not only looking for donations, I would really love and appreciate your support/ideas too, in helping me to achieve my dream of going to Antarctica and carrying out a scientific study.[/p][p]Why scouting and why me? [/p][p]Here is a little bit background information on me: [/p][p]I am 18 years old and I am currently at University of Huddersfield studying an undergraduate course in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. [/p][p]I was raised in an small idyllic village in kent and was lucky to join the scouting movement there when I was 6. I have always been passionate with scouting attending every meeting, event, camp. This gave me the chance to be young leader when i was 14, giving back to the community and making sure fellow scout members received the best experience through the organisation was a must for me. Because I am now at university I have just recently started as a assistant scout leader for a new group in Yorkshire. This should keep me busy during term time! Until I return back to my group throughout the holidays. [/p][p]I would really appreciate all your help in achieving my fundraising goal! I have until 2021 to raise all funds. This opportunity is once in a lifetime and will give me a great story to tell to all my future scouting pals! Which hopefully they could achieve one day too! [/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you [/p][p]Genevieve Scullion [/p][p]If you would like to follow my journey more closely, you can follow my new instagram @genny_request2021journey or pay attention to this page where i will post updates on my progress.
