raised of £5,500 target by 36 supporters

    Weʼve raised £610 to help replace the damaged equipment, building, doors, windows. In fact the whole facility has been severely damaged by the recent burglary.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We have recently been burgled and the whole building has been vandalised, doors forced open, windows smashed, essential equipment mindlessly destroyed and left us with repair and equipment bills running into the £1000s. If we can't raise enough money to get the building safe and replace the essentials, the future of this long running scout group will be uncertain. Please donate what you can. Every little helps.

      As a veteran scout from 1971-73 I had loads of enjoyable moments with the 4th. Good luck with your appeal.
