Fundraising Update

Fundraising Update

Thank you!!

Thank you to everyone who supported our Fundraising efforts in 2015.  We had a fantastic end to the year which has enabled us to greatly subsidise the costs of taking our Cubs and Scouts to the big County Camp “Wild West Marra” in May.


Chronicle Wish Tokens and Postal Stamp collection

The Wish token appeal has now ended and we are collecting in the remaining tokens.  We need to send them to Chronicle by the beginning of February and we then eagerly await the news on how much share we receive.  Thank you to everybody who has been collecting the tokens.

We have now signed up to the fundraising stamps scheme and we are asking everybody to save the postal stamps to be recycled.  We will receive £11 per kilo for the stamps we send to them. Please remember to cut them from the envelopes and bring them in to Group.

Asda Benton Community Token collection

If you are shopping in Asda Benton, we currently have a Community Token Collection Point (Green Token) taking place until the end of February.  Please make sure you ask for you tokens and drop them in the box located in the glass fronted foyer.

Easter Egg donations

As previously mentioned, we were overwhelmed by the support we received for our chocolate donations. We would like to run a similar collection this term and request donations of Easter eggs, chocolate and any Easter related items.  We are hoping to have another social night with bingo and quizzes and also have Easter Egg hunts for the uniformed members. With your support we can make up some eggs-ellent prizes. Please think about sticking anything from a couple of crème eggs to one of your 2 for 1 eggs you know will now be creeping in to the supermarkets.  Thank you.


We are hoping to secure a tombola table nearer to Easter, possibly in Killingworth Centre or any other venues you might want to suggest.  We already have a range of prizes that we have kept from your donations but if you have any other items, such as unused Christmas gifts then please consider donating them to our tombola collection.
