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're raising funds in memory of Peter Pearce, a much loved Leader at the 11th Purley Scout Group. Peter, or 'Bagheera' to the Cubs, was at the heart of 11th Purley since its inception in the early 1990's. Throughout his Scouting career, he has been an inspiration to Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts, Leaders, helpers, and friends of the Group as well as being a trusted and loyal friend to many outside of Scouting.
As a District leader Peter did so much for the local Scouting Community, supporting other Scout groups and helping to organise and run district-wide events.
This year, due to the pandemic, Scout groups haven't been able to engage in the same fundraising activities as usual.
To recognise Peter's dedication to Scouting, we're hoping to raise at least £3,000 in his memory to help local Scout groups in the area.
Peter's passion for helping the community and changing the lives of so many young people is an inspiration to us all. Please help keep this memory alive and help us honour his service within the local Scouting community with your donation.
Thank you, from Chris and Peter's family, and Peter's extended Scouting family.

A true scouting giant, sorely missed. Thanks for the memories as a cub at the 28th and the support as a fellow leader.
