Fundraising is an activity that is ongoing to provide funds for Scouting activities and to maintain our Scout Halls. The major fundraising activities each year are: the Lisvane Festival Fete and Panthers Day, Llanishen & Lisvane Group Summer Fete, Bonfire and Firework Display and Scout Post. These activities are organised by the Group Executive and Leaders. Other smaller activities may raise funds, check your emails for details. Any ideas for new fundraising initiatives, speak to a Leader or a member of the Group Executive. We also raise money for other charities as part of our ethos to “Help other people”.
Volunteers are always being sought for these fundraising activities. Please respond to requests for volunteers if you can – helping out before an event with preparations, during the event and after the event are all really essential to make sure these events run smoothly.
BONFIRE AND FIREWORK DISPLAY (first Sunday in November)
Volunteers really enjoy preparing for this brilliant event – firework starters, fire building, bagging sweets, preparing and selling food, making cakes, and helping to tidy up on the night and the day after.
Each year’s bonfire night raises a significant amount for the Group, which will be used to subsidise Scout activities and maintain our halls.
SCOUT CHRISTMAS POST
We raise approx £4000 most years. It is a great activity for all our members as everyone can get involved with selling stamps, sorting post and delivering cards. By buying stamps you, your friends and neighbours, can contribute to the Scout Group with every stamp sold. Cards are sorted by lovely volunteers (YOU!) and delivered in time for Christmas. Volunteers who help out last year say it is loads of fun! and brings out the inner Postman Pat in you. So, next October, please be sure to volunteer!
LLANISHEN & LISVANE SCOUT GROUP FETE
This happens every summer in June and is great fun. There are lots of stalls and delicious afternoon tea and a BBQ.
