Weʼre raising £1,200 to help fund a trip to the Netherlands for 8th Hornchurch Scouts
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

8th Hornchurch Scouts, along with a couple of other of scouts troops are planning a trip to the Netherlands for a week. But before hand we are trying to raise some funds so that the scouts don’t have to pay so much. Also due to the effects of brexit, certain things or services we need to acquire, might increase in price. So this money would help towards the effects of that factor.
The reason why I care about these scouts, is because every 4 or 5 years we like to take the scouts abroad not just to treat them but to show them a new experience. Scouting is all about teaching kids new skills physically or in terms of knowledge, which they can use later on in life. I believe the reason I care about these scouts, is because kids are the future. They are the next generation of humanity to impact this world and make a difference. So with scouting this will help them to do that as they will grow more confident and learn more skills. Kids are the next generation to leave behind a legacy for future generations to come forward and embrace. So with trips like this not only is it a treat, but it’s a memory. Something which they can look back on and say “yeah, I did that with the scouts and you know what I loved it”. It’s for reasons like this which make scouting such an amazing family to be part of.
