A new way to volunteer for Scouting in Irthlingborough

Tuesday 15th February 2011 the 103rd Anniversary of Scouting in Irthlingborough will see the launch of Scout Active Support, a new way of allowing Adult volunteers to support and get involved with local Scouting.

Scout Active Support was launched in September 2009 and is the new name for Scout Fellowship, a Scout Section for adults aged 18 upwards who wish to use the skills they already have and to develop new skills to support local Scouting.

Bonfire Night and Fireworks - November 6th 2010

A Group of Leaders, Helpers, Parent Volunteers and the older Scouts managed the Hall Park Side Gate and through their superb efforts have received a massive £719.00 Cheque!

Nick organised the helpers on the night and Lisa the sales of tickets in advance-25% of which will go directly to the Young People’s Sections at Irthlingborough.

The whole event made sure that this sum raised will equate to £9.00 per child in our Group - and thus saves us lots of additional fundraising.

(our utility bills can be up to £1200.00 per year!)

For just a few hours work on the night , and open to all Parents and Friends to come along and help, gives the Group this massive cash injection.

So a big ‘thank you’ - to all who took part.

See you (and more volunteers, please) next year!

 
Ex-leader wins Tote Christmas Hamper - 23rd December 2010

The Annual Free Hamper Draw for members of the Tote was held at the Leaders Annual Dinner at the Eastern Spice on Friday 17th December 2010.

The winner was John Linnell – and we hope that the Linnell Family enjoy the Hamper.

Each year we run a Tote which helps us fund the Insurance, Heating and expenses of the Headquarters and more of you are really urged to become part of the Tote. All you have to do is to pay a modest £10.00 per year – which gives you 10 monthly Draws - each with a 1st prize of £50.00 and a second prize of £15.00 (actual second prize amount will depend on final total of members).

And there is a FREE Draw in December – for members only.

Look out for the invitation to join or renew soon in 2011.

Thank you for your support.
