There is a shortfall between the money we receive from subscriptions and the costs associated with running the group. As such we rely heavily on fundraising to help cover the remaining costs and to help ensure we continue to provide the best service to our young people.
We rely on local people to raise money for our Group by holding, or taking part in fundraising events. Without this fundraising, we would be unable to meet the costs involved in the everyday running of the group and would have to increase our subscriptions or we would have to reduce the service we offer.
Fundraising has taken place in the past by our young people (sponsored fun runs, drawing competitions), our section leaders (cake sales, quiz nights, family BBQs), our parents (marathon sponsorships, supporting our events), our local residents (paper collections, donations) and our local businesses (corporate sponsorship). We welcome suggestions for new fundraising ideas and appreciate any help we are offered.
