Very Sad News...

A group of Scouts from Kent has been attending Roihu 2016, the International Finnish Jamboree. Yesterday evening, while in camp, a male Scout collapsed. The on site medical team and paramedics from the local hospital rendered immediate support but unfortunately were unable to save him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of this young Scout during this difficult and challenging time.

The Scout Association (UK) is in touch with all the families of the young people attending the Finnish National Jamboree from Kent, ensuring they are fully briefed and supported.

We will be working with the Finnish Scout Movement and the relevant local authorities to establish the full details of this tragic incident.

Following the message from Wayne Bulpit

Kent Scouts are truly saddened by the devastating news that Charlie Girling a Scout from the 1st Aylesford was suddenly taken seriously ill while attending Roihu 2016, the International Finnish Jamboree.

Charlie was treated quickly by a Finnish Scout leader who was a doctor and the onsite medical team and paramedics from the local hospital but unfortunately they were unable to save him. You can understand how devastating this will have been for all concerned, all members of the party are now back in Kent and will have access to appropriate support.

Charlie loved Scouting and will be greatly missed. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Charlie at this time.
