FREE TRAINING AND / OR TRAVEL COSTS FOR AN ADVENTUROUS ACTIVITY

     




 

TRAVEL COSTS
   

The Fund exists to aid Scouts of West Sussex to travel on their way to, or as part of, an adventurous expedition. This aid will be in the form of a monetary grant made to an individual and will go towards travel expenses. The Fund will only ASSIST in the purchase of tickets not provide all the money required. The actual level of assistance being decided by the type of expedition involved, and the effort the individual Scout has already made to cover his or her costs. No comparison is possible between grants year to year as the assistance the Fund can give, in any one year, is limited. There is only a fixed amount of jam which the Management Committee aims to spread fairly over as much bread as possible.

The type of adventurous journey that the Fund could help are, for example, Explorer Belt expeditions, trips made for the purpose of some special activity i.e. climbing, caving, sailing, scientific investigation, photographic, sociological study or a Sail Training voyage. Other examples could be an expedition involving backpacking, high level walking or underwater exploration.

In all cases the emphasis must be on the adventurous travel or activity and in this respect the Fund will not support package skiing trips or similar, not will it normally aid persons that are part of a group expedition.
