Fundraising at the Wokingham Winter Carnival – 26th November 2006

Calling for your help with fundraising

As many of you already know, the boys and girls are now hard at work preparing their floats for the Winter Carnival on Sunday 26th November.  You will recently have received emails asking for your help with decorating the floats (and the kids), and a big thank you to those of you who have already offered your services.

On the same day, we are also hoping to run a stall selling bacon butties, but cannot do this without volunteers to help man the stall.  I know that you are all busy, but please could you spare an hour or so on the day to help.  This is an important part of our fundraising calendar – last year we raised £300, which went straight back towards funding activities for the boys and girls in our groups. The stall will be running all day, so any time you could spare would be much appreciated.

Please call me on 0118 973 3559, or email me at if you can help in any way.

And lastly, many of you will no doubt have noticed that the Wokingham Times runs a weekly draw to donate £200 to a nominated good cause.  Please take the time to fill these coupons in and nominate the 1st Finchamsptead Scout Group.  Who knows, we may eventually be picked in the draw!  Please feel free to nominate us as often as possible.

Many thanks.
