    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.


    1st Samford Valley Scout Group has a growing number of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and long may this continue. The Scouting movement provides an inclusive environment for young minds to experience and explore life - to overcome challenges and to make new friends. We need resources to do this, and have a dwindling store of kit which needs enhancing and protecting for future Beavers, Cubs and Scouts! In fact the kit has only just been recovered from a variety of different locations from all over the peninsular! We desperately need a storage solution and a transport solution to facilitate camps and trips.

    Scouting helped shaped my young mind and I have been a volunteer for the last 12 years - all three of my children have benefitted from it hugely from making friends with owls to overnight camps, boat building, knotting skills, baking, racing, face painting, first aid, survival skills and live video links with cubs and scouts from across the river and the rest of the world. I want to make sure every child has the opportunity to experience the same! A little investment at this stage will benefit generations to come.

      Back on dry land!!! What an adventure. 40 miles in total in 14.39 hours. Some heroic swimming towards the end saw us swim against a huge spring tide - bet you all saw the moon last night! Amazing team effort. Thank you all for your amazing support - this means a huge deal to the kids and future generations of kids that will have their lives enhanced through the Scouting movement. More to follow - typing hurts!

      So with the impending storm travelling up from the west and another weather front following it, we are very unlikely to be crossing for the next 6 or 7 days... anything above 15mph is difficult and current conditions are 40 and increasing! So we are trying to keep a lid on our nerves for another week!!! Your donations are overwhelming - thank you all so very much - this will have such a positive impact on the lives of the children in our community.
