Fundraising in 2017

We have a very active fundraising section at 1st Roffey scout group, many events are planned throughout the year, so please support these if you can.

Our fundraising efforts in 2017 will be focused on the project of floor replacement, the floor in the hut is getting towards end of life and so desperately needs replacing, as you can imaging this is no small project and is going to need some major funding, so please support the events as much as you can, it would be very much appreciated.

We have several fundraising events planned through the year;

Sponsored ‘Swimathon’, 12th March 2017.

Town Center Treasure Hunt, 1st May 2017.

Family bingo night, 16th June 2017

Riverside Walk in aid of the ‘Action Medical Research for Children’ and 1st Roffey Scouts, 15th July 2017

Another date for your diaries—AGM afternoon 17th September 2017.

Obviously these are predominantly fundraisers, but are also a great opportunity to meet other parents, leaders and the friendly executive committee!

How can you help???

We know many of you are busy and don’t have a great deal of time to give but we would like to create a list of people who are happy to be ‘occasional helpers’. Maybe you could bake? Help with some maintenance at the hut? Help set up or run an event? Sell raffle tickets? Donate a raffle prize? Does your employer match funding or provide funds/prizes/grants?

And finally…we are collecting ‘Sainsbury active kids’ vouchers again this year. See the collection box in the Scout Hut foyer.

Many thanks,

Vicky Cole
