Dear Sirs

Some time ago you gave a donation to help me attend the World Scout Jamboree in Japan and I just wanted to say a belated thank you for being so kind and donating to help me get to Japan.

I have now been home a few months and have recently attended a reunion camp with all my patrol who attended the Jamboree. We have all become firm friends after the experiences we went through together during both our training camps and the actual Jamboree. The journey there and back was very long, including a five hour wait in Hong Kong on our way back but this was all part of the adventure.

One of the most memorable things we did was go to Hiroshima, you probably know it was the 70th anniversary which made it all the more poignant. We also stayed with a Japanese family for a few nights in pairs which was an incredible experience as we got to experience Japanese culture first hand. I have kept in touch with my family and we communicate on a regular basis.

Overall i got to try some very interesting food, learn how to cope with very high humidity (we were the only English camp not to need a visit to hospital for dehydration among other ailments!), learn about people from so many different countries and spend time with them and experience their cultures too.They were all very friendly, and we all made some friends who i hope to stay in contact with for the rest of my life.

This was the best experience of my life so far and I'm sorry this letter to you is so late but my journey would not have been possible without the very kind donations from people like you.

Thank You again

Kind Regards

Ollie Nicholls
