Scouts’ fundraising events

Ist Goostrey Scouts need to raise £200,000 to fund the construction of the new Scout Hut and Youth Facility, and the first fundraising events of 2015 have been going very well.

The Family Quiz Night & Supper held on Sunday 8 February at the Village Hall was a sell-out, and raised a fantastic £1,000 towards the costs of building the new Scout hut. Thanks to all who attended, donated raffle prizes and assisted in any way.

The Scouts are extremely grateful to Karlton and Barlow, owners of the Crown, for all their support and co-operation.  They have donated  £400 from their ‘locals night’  and have supported the monthly Open Mic nights which have raised over £200 so far – as well as allowing the use of their carpark for the Car Wash and Car Boot Sale.

Local residents and businesses wishing to contribute, or make suggestions for raising funds to get the Scout hut built,  are invited to contact David Giles, Group Scout Leader of 1st Goostrey Scouts at :
