How can I help the Scout Group?
1. Lend a hand.
The more adults we have helping our group then the less onerous it becomes for the people who volunteer.
The current leadership structure is:
Leader (fully trained)
Assistant Leader (fully trained)
Section assistant (regular helper but minimal training)
Parent helper (occasional helper no training)
We are grateful for any time offered no matter how infrequent or adhoc it may be.
If you think you might be able to help please have a word with your section leader.
2. Donate "stuff"
You would be amazed at the sort of things we use in our sections. String, cord, rope, bamboo poles, palettes, wheels, wood, logs, paper, card, pencils, pens, sugar, flour......in fact the list goes on and on. If you think you might have something our group could use please contact your section leader or our GSL.
New equipment is generally bought from donations or fundraising as it allows us to claim giftaid before making our purchases. Some examples on our wishlist are.............
Foam footballs are always on our list
Compasses of course!
"Tarps" for survival camps.
Firesteels for our firelighting activities.
Our group has a mission to be inclusive regardless of race creed or financial status and any extra revenue can go towards our hardship fund to help families who struggle with their subscriptions or activity fees.
Donations can be made by electronic transfer or cheque to your section leader. Please mark the cheque "donation" or include "donation" and your surname in the reference box on the e-transfer.
Where possible we would like to claim giftaid on all donations.
