Fundraising

Scouting is a charity, and great scouting requires sufficient funds – to run camps, purchase equipment, provide badges and so on. Please help us raise money so that we can continue to offer a high quality Scouting experience.

See below for a list of our fundraising activities – and please let us know if you an help out or have any new ideas!

Another way that we earn money is through Gift Aid. This is tax relief on donations to charities such as us, through which we can reclaim approximately an extra 28% from all donations made to the group, including subs, with no extra cost to you.
