Scouting is a charity, and great scouting requires sufficient funds – to run camps, purchase equipment, provide badges and so on. We would appreciate your help with fundraising so that we can continue to offer a high quality Scouting experience.
Our permanent fundraising activities are:
- Marquee hire. During the warmer months we need volunteers to help erect or strike our marquees. This is a very good fundraiser for the group and only takes an hour or so of your time. Anyone can do it, as you will be given guidance from an experienced person. Please speak to a leader or Emma Burgess if you can help.
- 100 Club Draw. Currently not active.
- Collecting stamps (foreign and UK). Please trim from envelopes and place in the relevant box in the scout hut.
- Recycling used inkjet cartridges. These must be named brands, and ‘virgin’ cartridges (ie not refilled). Brands we can recycle include HP, Dell, Lexmark, Canon, Samsung, Neopost. We cannot take Epson & Kodak as they are ink tanks, not cartridges. Please place in the box in the scout hut.
We have had two recent international camps – Rotterdam in the Netherlands in 2011 and De Kluis in Belgium in 2014, and undertook many fundraising activities to ensure the camps were affordable to all. These included:
- Car Treasure Hunt
- Family Quiz Night
- New Years Eve Party
- Golf Day
- Toy Swap
- Sponsored Chores Week
Any special fundraising causes will have their own page on the website.
Please let us know if you can help out, or have any new fundraising ideas.
