Our fundraising bagpack at Asda raises over £1,500

23 September 2014

Thank you to everyone who supported the bag pack at ASDA Morley on Saturday. It was a really long day but we raised a fantastic £1,549! It made a massive difference to those that were starting to get weary to have new faces arriving to help pack even if it was just for an hour and as always our young people impressed customers and staff with their smart uniforms and great attitudes. All those who helped on the day will get a badge to say thank you :).

We hope to be able to secure some more matched funding on this money raised which would increase it to over £2,000.

That means that if all of our pledged matched funding comes through we will have raised an amazing £7,600 in a little over 6 months …WOW! You guys are amazing!

So what’s next…….

  • Easy fundraising – Starting your Christmas shopping early, earn donations at no extra cost to you by joining one of our fundraising causes on Easyfundraising – Carlton Scout Group. Next search for your retailer, click on the link and shop, the money comes straight to us without you having to do anything more. You can even raise money on purchases you reserve online at Argos and then pick up in store.
  • Chocolate tombola – we will be having a non-uniform night on 27th November, simply come in non-uniform and bring down a chocolate donation, we will then use these donations to run a chocolate tombola at the Church Christmas fair on 6th December. More details to follow, but if you spot a great Chocolate deal in the supermarket why not buy some now and poop it in the cupboard (if you trust yourself not to eat it!)
  • WASH – Real Ale, Wine, Pie and singing from the lovely folk at St Peter’s Morley. More details to follow.
