The Group’s preferred method of payment for events is by Direct Debit via My.Scout. This is collected via GoCardless, our payments processor. This Direct Debit mandate is used for one-off event payments only, and we won’t ever take money without your explicit permission, every time. Permission is given when you confirm event attendance (to an event where a payment is required), and payment will be taken a few days before the event.
Any cheques for events should be made payable to “1st Finchampstead Scout Group” and passed to your section Leader.
Payment may be made by bank transfer for events. The payment reference must be updated for each event, so the payment can be clearly identified. Please ensure your section Leader is aware you have paid by Bank Transfer.
