The Scouts, Cubs and Beavers from 1st Burnmoor Scout Group would like to gather enough pennies and two pence pieces to line them up to make a mile!


  • Start collecting your pennies and ask your family, friends and work colleagues to gather any 1p and 2p pieces.
  • Give them boxes to store them in and collect regularly.
  • Ask any local businesses or shops to put a collection tin out or next to their till to collect any coppers.

We will be in touch in a month or two about starting to collect them at the hall and keep a track of how far we have got.

As part of a fundraising event in the spring term we will be having a tombola stall. When Spring cleaning or making space for those new gifts, if you find anything old you want to give away (or maybe one or two of you have unwanted gifts?). Pop them in a bag and drop them at the hall in the new year.

A huge thank you to everyone who sold raffle tickets and donated prizes.  Also, a big thank you to our fundraisers Rebecca Gray and Anita Thompson who have sold calendars and decorations to raise funds.

Our raffle and Christmas sales have made a fantastic total of £500 for our scout funds.

Well done to Theo our first member of the academic year to get their Chief Scout award. 
All our leaders from all sections are working hard on programmes to ensure we have many more members at the awards in September 2020. 
In order to get the Chief Scout Award members must have good attendance and attend as many events and camps as possible as there’s lots to cover for the award.
Well done to Steph and all the volunteers at Cubs.
