100+ Club

Posted in Fundraising

Each month we draw a lucky winner from our 100 club member list, the more members we get, the more the prize draw will be.

We are currently averaging around £25 payout per month. If you are interested please contact the leaders for a form (it will also be available soon online), pay your fee and keep your fingers crossed.

It is only £1 per number per month to participate, you can pay annually or via standing order.

So far we have raised over £1000 towards our scout funds, the money goes towards activities that the Beaver, Cubs and Scouts do.
