With thanks to the Tesco Community Grants, we have been able to give a much needed upgrade to our front external fence.

New Gate and Fencing installed at HQ

Our existing front external fence and gateway was beyond repair, the Executive Committee decided to allocate some funds from our fundraising work, along with the money from the Tesco Community Grant to have a new one installed.

Although this doesn’t directly impact our young people, it makes our premises more secure, and certainly looks a lot better!

Fundraising is the most vital part of our Scout Group, as we want to keep our subscription costs down for parents and young people. We’re signed up to a service called Easyfundraising and AmazonSmile that makes it easy for parents to help us fundraise, without really knowing their doing it.

To use Amazon Smile, first visit https://smile.amazon.co.uk and sign in to your current Amazon account, you can then select 10th Leicester (Syston) Scout Group from the list of charities. You can then go into the settings on the Amazon mobile app and select it so that it automatically donates when you buy something from Amazon – at no cost to you!

To use EasyFundraising, visit https://systonscouts.org.uk/easyfundraising and follow the instructions to sign up. Once you have signed up, download the EasyFundraising app to your device, search for the retailer that you’d like to purchase from and they’ll send us a donation!
