Scouting is a charity and great Scouting requires sufficient funds. Raising funds is a vital part of keeping the group going. Subscriptions are used to cover basic running costs such as badges, insurance and national subscriptions.

The cost of group equipment, running the hall, trips etc. require fundraising by the group. Our current funds come from grants and events such as our Annual Casino Night and Christmas Raffle.

As the group expands, our fundraising is expanding. We would most welcome of your support – please let us know if you can help out with fundraising or have any new ideas!

Match Fundraising – Does your place of work offer match funding? If so consider helping us organise one of our fundraising activities and add a significant contribution to the group.

We have our own Crowd Funding page. As the site explains, our local Scout Hall desperately needs to create an access for all ramp and disabled toilet for use by our Scout Group and the Local Community. Please consider donating to our cause but also, please can we ask you to share this page, far and wide. To everyone, to local businesses to friends, colleagues and anyone who you think may like to support our cause. THANK YOU, 1st Burnmoor Scout Group Committee.
