Fundraising activities

Scouting is a charity, and great scouting requires sufficient funds – to run camps, purchase equipment, provide badges and so on.

Our group run a Sub & Levy system.

Subs & Levy are payable once a Scout is invested. Subs of £15.00 are payable each term. There is also a levy of £60.00 which is paid by every invested member to cover capitation (Scout Association insurance & to “belong” to Scouting) and running costs of the Group, this is divided up and is payable as £20.00 per term at the same time as the subs are due.

Therefore the termly cost is £35.00.  Online payment is encouraged, or cheques can be made payable to 3rd Romsey Scout Group.

The combined subs and levy ensure parents do NOT have to fundraise and it provides the money for running the Group, paying insurance and replacing equipment.

Some activities are charged as extra, camps/competitions/weekend activities fall into this category.

3rd Romsey Scout Group recognises that from time to time a fundraising event can provide a welcome financial boost to help pay for a particular activity or scouting equipment. It can also be a great opportunity for parents and friends to come along and enjoy the spirit of scouting.

In recent years the Group has arranged a Quiz Night hosted by the famous ‘Quiz Meister’, we held a Race Night at Michelmersh & Timsbury Social Club and for the past three years, in 2014, 2015 & 2016, we held a Gala Dinner Dance which was extremely well attended and was great fun.  Every penny raised goes towards the Group – and helps to keep cost to parents down.

If you know of an activity or fundraising opportunity which could benefit our Group the Leaders and Executive Committee would be very interested to hear about it.
