As we are a charity, fundraising is vital in boosting our funds for camps, purchasing equipment, building maintenance etc. We organise and participate in a number of fundraising events throughout the year. These events include:
- Quiz Nights
- Bag packing at local supermarkets
- Annual AGM with BBQ
- Participation in Wokingham Summer and Christmas Fairs
- Santa Float
- Scout Post
Remember: Without fundraising we would have to significantly increase subs.

Help us Fundraise
Our Scout Hut needs constant maintenance and we can only do this through raising the much need cash via fundraising. Can you spare some time to raise funds for the Group?
The Fundraising Chair and team do this by organising events like bag packing for our younger members, to quiz nights and our Summer BBQ. New ideas are always welcome too.
