10th Warrington Scout Group Fundraising

We are actively raising money to upgrade our kitchen and toilet facilities with a permanent and accessible welfare building.  You can find out more about this exciting project and how to support it here.

While you’re here, why not take a look at some of the other ways you can help us raise funds at no cost to you!

Upcoming Events

  • We will be having a stall at St Mary’s Church Summer Fayre on Saturday 18th September between 12 am and 4 pm – come and have a go at one of our games.
  • We will shortly be announcing our Buy a Block scheme to enable members of the community to sponsor part of our new building and have their name immortalised on our “Wall of Fame” alongside our other donors.
  • We are planning to take orders for our Winter Plant Sale in October. Come back then to order your wreaths, poinsettias and much more in time for Christmas!
  • During October, November and December we shall be participating in the Tesco Community Grant Scheme.  Whenever you shop in a Warrington branch of Tesco you will be able to vote for our project and influence how much we will get.

Previous Fundraising

Our normal spring plant sale took on a new form in 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions and we teamed up with Woodend Nursery to bring you a 20% discount on bedding plants bought at the Nursery throughout May.
Between 5th and 15th April our scout section walked the length of the UK to help our fundraising effort.  They completed the challenge ahead of schedule, so they kept on walking until the 15th and racked up a further 109 miles.
As part of our fundraising drive, we are preparing to take orders for these stylish scout themed night lights for £20 each.

They comprise a perspex plaque with a multi coloured light base and colour controls.  Battery/USB (5V) powered.

Choose Beavers, Cubs or Scouts and add a name of your choice.

Watch this space to find out how to order.

Thank you to everyone who supported our winter plant sale this year.  It is proving to be a worthwhile fundraiser for us, so we hope to be back again next year with more Christmas wreaths, Poinsettias and other Christmas themed plants and decorations.

 

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
