Fundraising

Scouting is a charity, and great scouting requires sufficient funds – to run camps, purchase equipment, provide badges and so on. Please help us raise money so that we can continue to offer a high quality Scouting experience.

See below for a list of our fundraising activities – and please let us know if you an help out or have any new ideas!

Raise money for us as you shop

Easy Fundraising 

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for 16th Laurieston Scout Group with easyfundraising?

There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.

Please signup at Easy Fundraising and set us as your beneficiary and do all your online shopping through them and generate free money for us – at absolutely no cost to you!

Raise money for us as change your wardrobe

When its time to throw out those clothes that you no longer wear or want anymore then please place in a clothes bag and place in the Ragbag Bin at the Scout Hall

Fundraise for us

You can support us by raising money by doing a sponsored charity event. and we receive every penny of the money donated as well as Gift Aid!

Gift Aid

Another way that we earn money is through Gift Aid. This is tax relief on donations to charities such as us, through which we can reclaim approximately an extra 28% from all donations made to the group, including subs, with no extra cost to you.
