Subscriptions for Scouts and Cubs are now £27/term, with this year’s Capitation Fee set at £34. We do thank you for paying these fees promptly, as they are an important part of the funds the Group needs each year to maintain the high standard of Scouting activities we currently provide for your young people.
You will be aware that through the Gift Aid scheme, Registered Charities – and both the Scout Group and the Scout Association are Registered Charities – can claim back from HMRC the equivalent of any income tax paid in monies paid to us for subscriptions and donations.
We would ask, therefore, that if you are a UK tax-payer, that you consider printing and filling in this form Gift Aid Declaration Form 2013 and returning it to us via your son or daughter to Scouts on a Scout night. If you wish you can send it directly to the Group Treasurer at the address shown on the form, but it might be easier if you passed the form to one of the Scouters on a Scout night.
Please feel free to ask any further questions about this.
