Clipper Helps Scouts On Their Way To Jamboree

Leeds-based Clipper Logistics has done a good deed by helping scouts from West Yorkshire get on their way to the World Scout Jamboree.

Every four years, Scouts from around the world gather together for the Jamboree, which this year will be held in Rinkably in Sweden from Wednesday 27th July to Sunday 7th August.

64 young people aged 14-18 and 6 Scout leaders will attend from the West Yorkshire region, joining around 39,000 other Scouts from 168 countries across the world that   are also attending the popular 12 day event.

A number of countries will also be creating a Food House to cater for the thousands of visitors for the event. The food house team of 66 adult leaders will travel to Sweden to create culinary delights and to give the visitors a little bit of flavour of the UK. The theme of the UK Food House is a castle, which includes a 100-foot wide
wide, 20-foot high castle wall, a courtyard and a great hall, all manufactured by the team using materials kindly donated by local firms.

Clipper Logistics have offered logistical support to help the team to transport the 22 tonnes of castle and catering equipment across Europe, which will be delivered to DFDS Seaways Immingham, ready to set sail on Tuesday 19th July.

Graham Earnshaw, Head of the UK Food House and District Commissioner of Huddersfield North Scouts said: “A world scout jamboree is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the young people who are chosen to attend, giving them an opportunity to make friends from all over the world. The support from Clipper and their transport contacts has been key to the success of our part in this massive project.”

Ted Johnson, HR Director, Clipper Logistics comments: “As a Yorkshire based company we are delighted to be able to support the Yorkshire Scouts on their adventure to Sweden. The Scouts will no doubt be learning and demonstrating many hands on management skills in the planning and building of the Food Hall; which I am sure will be put to good use by all at the world jamboree. We wish the Scouts well and are glad that we are able to apply our ability and agility to transport their Food House to Scandinavia.”
