It was decided at the last executive meeting that we would need to raise £25,000 before we start to look around for a replacement building for the scout hut. Although the response from many parents has been poor so far, we hope that everyone will play their part in helping to raise the funds. We currently have £14,000, so we are part way there!

 

Our aim is to try to attract funding from outside the group, so that it is not the same people putting their hands in their pockets. To do this we do need you to encourage companies that you work for to get involved. Together we can achieve our goal!


The Penny Mile 

THE CHALLENGE IS ON!!!!   We are hoping to make a mile of pennies this is 84,480 pennies!! And all before Christmas 2013 . Please save and collect your loose change and put it in the tub in the Scout Hut. Please ask friends, family and neighbours to all help too. This is to help raise much needed funds to replace the old Scout Hut so lets all work together and take on the challenge!!


 

100+ CLUB

You are invited to join our 100+ Club to help raise funds for the 11th Rotherham Scout Group. The 100+ club is only open to families and friends of the Scout group.

Each number costs £12 per annum (or £1 each by standing order) for each number that you require and this entitles you to a chance of winning a monthly prize of 50% of the monthly income. The money must be paid in advance of the draw, standing orders by 5th of each month or annual payments. Find out more...


Buy A "Brick"

As part of our fundraising we are selling “bricks” for £10. If we sell 1500 we will reach our target! Again we need your help in encouraging as many people you know, not only to buy a brick but also to sell some for us. Please do what you can.

If you already shop online with retailers such as Amazon, M&S, Argos, John Lewis, Comet, Vodafone, eBay, Boden and Play.com, then we need you to sign up for free to raise money while you shop!

So how does it work? 

You shop directly with the retailer as you would normally, but if you sign up to www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/11throtherhamsg for free and use the links on the easyfundraising site to take you to the retailer, then a percentage of whatever you spend comes directly to us at no extra cost to yourself.
