Fundraising Information

We are a registered charity and we do not get any funding from Scout Headquarters.

We try to organise and take part in various activities, events, social evenings, camps and fundraising throughout the year. In order to provide an environment in which our members are happy and secure we must raise funds on a regular basis.
