This year’s major Fundraiser for 1st Winchester Scout Group is on 21st May with our annual mammoth Car Parking effort in support of Sparsholt College Countryside Day. It’s a vital day for us, so please get the date in your diaries. If you plan ahead you can get a family ticket to enter the Countryside Day for FREE whilst parents take it in turns to help out. We need about 20 adults in the morning and the same in the afternoon. We also need people to help during a few evenings before the day and we are looking for a person to help Tristan directly in supporting his efforts to coordinate activities. Could you do this? If so, put your name and time in our doodle scheduler by following this link
Thanks everyone for a really great response to our efforts to get our Subscriptions right. As you will appreciate, subs are a critical income for us as they pay for vital things such as:
- Membership of the Scout Association
- Insurance (against accidents and other things)
- Services at District, County and National levels
- Leader Training
We pay this out for every child, whether or not they have paid their subs. So when we get 95% of subs in, it really gives us some spare cash to pay for other things like replacement equipment, new equipment, courses to run new activities, etc.
So thanks again. We all appreciate your efforts.
Thanks to everyone who took part in a Night at the Races on Saturday 5th Sept. It was very enjoyable and we raised approx. £600. Most of all, thanks to Jo King for organising it and the band of trusty supporters who rallied around to make it happen. It’s a great feeling when something works so well! Everyone’s a winner!
For £5 you can Name a Horse at our Night at the Races on 5th September after the Littleton and Harestock Show. This is how you do it….
It is easy to hire 1st Place. Use the menu bar to find “Booking 1st Place”.
Rock and Roll Bingo Night – Saturday 21st March, 7.30pm. Part music quiz, part bingo – a whole load of fun! For more information and to book tickets (only £5) please email firstname.lastname@example.org
A big thank you for everyone who helped with car parking at the Littleton Show on Saturday 6th Sept. Once again we did a great job and earned the Group funds several hundred pounds. There were lots of well known helpers and it was great to see some new faces too.
The final tally of what we raised on The Long Haul is TBC, but will run into several thousand pounds. Please continue to ask people to donate – ask all your work colleagues, show them the video. It’s inspiring enough to make people donate!
Following a Coordination Meeting on Monday 30th June, much of The Long Haul information has been updated including the route and where to join the cart at specific Spectator Points. Check out The Long Haul pages again to help plan your day.
