Scout Community Week, supported by B&Q, is Scouting’s biggest UK-wide fundraising and awareness event of the year.
Taking place from 3–9 June 2013, Scout Community Week not only gives Scouts the opportunity to bond with our local community and raise essential funds for both local and national Scouting, it’s also a chance to promote and champion all the inspiring things we do during the other 51 weeks in the year.
Register for your Scout Community Week planning and fundraising pack by March 16th 2013 and you could win a £50 B&Q voucher to use for your community project.
Supporting Scouting Grants
All Groups taking part are asked to donate 25% of the money raised to help fund grants for Scouts with disabilities and additional needs – making a big difference.
This offers a vital lifeline to Groups and members who need financial support in order to take part in Scouting.
These grants fund projects across the UK, ranging in size and cost. Below is a handful of examples of what your donations could go towards. The remaining 75% can be kept by the Group to help deliver what Scouting does best – adventurous activities locally, every week.
