Fundraising

Thank YouThe Scouts from all sections work hard throughout the year at a number of fundraising events to generate extra money to purchase new equipment and to help keep our subs as low as possible.  These include bag packing at local supermarkets and the annual Scout Christmas post.

There are a number of ways that you can help too:

As money is often tight at this time of year, why not take a look at Utility warehouse. This is a way of potentially saving money on your fuel and internet bills by combining them in one easy package and helping our fundraising at the same time. Click Here, ask for one of our leaflets at the hut or arrange a chat with Rama (one of our cub leaders) in the near future. You will be able to compare your bills to see if it saves you money.
Gift aid
If you are a UK tax payer, please consider registering gift aid with us. For a form, please speak to your child’s section leader
Newspaper recycling
Please bring along your old newspapers and magazines. These can be dropped in on your child’s section night. Why not speak to your friends and relatives to get them collecting too.
