Fund raising

Over the years, the Group has had three principal fund-raising activities. These have been:

  • The Spring Bike Sale, normally held on the first or second Saturday in May
  • The Donkey Derby, normally held on a sunny Saturday in June
  • The Autumn Bike Sale, normally held on the first or second Saturday in September

We depend on the assistance of volunteers from amongst the parents of uniformed youngsters, and from other friends of the Group, as well as the Executive Committee and many of the uniformed leaders, to make these events work. Fund-raising events of this sort, in any given year, need to raise between between £5000 and £7000 for Group funds.

The Group thanks those that faithfully take part year after year, and we do encourage all parents of uniformed youngsters to consider how they might be able to offer a little help – for a little help can go a long way.
