AGM 2017 – Fundraising and Antler Club

The Group’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Tuesday 20th June at our HQ. We were joined by parents, leaders and scouts from all sections to hear about what we have achieved over the past year. 

Fundraising report

In March we arranged a Travelling trends fashion show the evening raised £480, thank you to all that got involved and supported.

The clothing bin is being regularly emptied and is generally full; all cheques have been passed to Liz for banking. Milk bottle tops are still being collected and are currently ready to be sent back depending on what money we receive we may not continue, it is a lot to store and we need at least 10 full bags before we can arrange a collection. Until this decision is made please keep them coming.

The committee is due to meet this month to discuss what we can do next, we discussed a summer fete but was decided this wouldn’t be a great success due to the local schools having similar events. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly received! Equally if any parents would like to be involved in fundraising please let us know.

The Antler club recently ran a fundraising skittles night for the scout group, raising £120. This was a fun evening enjoyed by all who attended and will now become more of a regular event. So come along to the next event and support your scout group, all monies raised goes back in to the group, details to follow on the next event.

Any unwanted birthday presents/gifts are most welcome as raffle prizes for bingo and the skittles nights. Please label them for the attention of Tracy Hogan and pass them to one of your leaders who will ensure that they are passed on, thank you in advance.

The group has recently spent over £100 on cleaning equipment for the hall. They have just sent up a ‘hardship fund’ to help make sure young people in our group get to go on at least one camp.
