Goostrey Scout group have now raised over £70,000 towards the building of the new Scout Hut and Youth Centre.
Message from David Giles, Group Scout Leader, 1st Goostrey Scouts:
“With your continued support for our forthcoming events, we aim to raise a further £10,000 by Christmas, this is a huge target to achieve, with your help we can do it!!
Please come and support us at the fund raising events we are running before Christmas:
5th November – Bonfire Night with Fireworks opposite the Crown, £5.00 tickets can be bought in advance at The Trading Post, Goostrey News and The Crown, £6.50 on the night. [Family ticket 2+2 £15 or £20 on the night]
22nd November – family quiz night and supper at the village hall – more details to follow.
29th November – family Christmas light switch-on, Carol singing with Brass band, BBQ and Mulled Wine with a visit from Santa on his sleigh!
December – Christmas post, let the Scouts deliver your post around Goostrey and Holmes Chapel, post boxes in the Trading Post, Mrs. Kettles and Goostrey News.
Proceeds from all these events will go directly towards the cost of building the new Scout Hut and Youth Centre. Please help us to reach our target of raising £80,000 by Christmas.
The cost of the new Scout Hut and Youth Centre is £200,000, we hope to get £80,000 from grant funding and shall therefore need to raise £120,000 from fund raising. With £70,000 in the bank, we are well over half way already!!
Thank you again for your continued support of our fund raising efforts, please thank your friends and family who have so kindly contributed too, please help us to raise the extra money we now need to build the new Scout Hut and Youth Centre.” My sincere thanks, David Giles – Group Scout Leader. 1st Goostrey Scouts
