Talking Fundraising


I'm a scout leader, and this weekend the scouts and myself were at my local Sainsbury's store and helped out customers in packing their bags.
We did 4 hours on Saturday, and 4 hours on Sunday and we raised a massive 728.60.

We are taking the scouts on camp next year and doing alot of activities that the children would never normally do, including a day trip to Alton Towers Theme Park, and this has really helped us fund it.

I just wanted to share my good weekend with everyone, and hope that you have all had a reason to smile as much as I have.

Much can be said for:
It's better to give than to receive.

I spent nine years as a scout leader, and have many fond memories.

I, too,


have been a scout leader, and had sooooo much fun. I remember all the fun we had doing things for fundraising--especially COOKIE SALES!!

Have a great time on your camping trip, I'm sure that all of the girls are going to enjoy it immensely. I have many fond memories of those as well.

I was a Girl Scout (and my 76-yr old mother still is!) -- great to see they are still doing wonderful things for the community.

Awesome Addie! I am sure the trip will be well worth all the time the kids and parents put into fundraising. It is amazing how generous some people can be these days.
