Subs and Direct Debits

Thanks everyone for a really great response to our efforts to get our Subscriptions right.  As you will appreciate, subs are a critical income for us as they pay for vital things such as:

  • Membership of the Scout Association
  • Insurance (against accidents and other things)
  • Badges
  • Pinsent
  • Services at District, County and National levels
  • Leader Training
  • Badges

We pay this out for every child, whether or not they have paid their subs.  So when we get 95% of subs in, it really gives us some spare cash to pay for other things like replacement equipment, new equipment, courses to run new activities, etc.

So thanks again.  We all appreciate your efforts.

Littleton Show – Thanks

A big thank you for everyone who helped with car parking at the Littleton Show on Saturday 6th Sept.  Once again we did a great job and earned the Group funds several hundred pounds.  There were lots of well known helpers and it was great to see some new faces too.

#TheLongHaul Total

The final tally of what we raised on The Long Haul is TBC, but will run into several thousand pounds.  Please continue to ask people to donate – ask all your work colleagues, show them the video.  It’s inspiring enough to make people donate!


Hopefully you’ve all received details of the 30 Challenge badge and your children are busy planning their fundraising.  Well, good news!  An anonymous donor has promised to give 50p for every £1 raised by each young person as part of the challenge badge – the more the young people raise the more the donor gives!

Leaders, please continue to promote this scheme.
