Fundraising

Thank You for Your Support

Throughout the year we are busy keeping scouting on the move which overall generates and spends an average of £15-20,000. This is raised from your subscriptions , the Spring plant sales, Christmas post delivery and a number of other fund raisers by the group. In additions we  receive fabulous support from a whole range of organisations and individuals . We would like to pay tribute to you all for your continued support. Here are some of the supporters:-
