Welcome to the Fundraising page for Stretton Scout Group
As a charity we always looking for new ways to raise money to support the learning and development of the children within the group.
The aim is to run a steady flow of events throughout the year to raise funds to support the group and to help promote the image of Stretton Scout Group and Scouting as a whole.
To date we have taken part in Stretton Community Day/Gala, Bark in the Park (an RSPCA organised event), organised a car boot sale, a tuck shop for the Beavers and Cubs, Jubilee Family Night, Royal themed garden party, a race night and bingo evenings and many more.
Our main fundraiser each year is held at Morrisons supermarket in Burton on Trent, where we go into store to help customers with their packing at the checkouts, this is a great opportunity to raise the profile of our group and Scouting in Burton.
The main responsibility for organising fundraising events is with our Group Executive Committee which is lead by our Group Chair. Within that committee we have a small group of volunteers who are responsible for the planning and organisation of fundraising events, this team are always on the lookout for more people and new ideas, please get in touch if you think this is something you can help us with.
We are looking for more volunteers to join our Group Scout Active Support Unit (SASU) to assist with the running of fundraising events. There is no minimum time commitment for this role, which means you can come and go as your life commitments allow, the more volunteers we have in the SASU to help us, the easier it is to organise and run events.
Please contact us if you are interested or would like more information.
