We are a scout group based in Newport Pagnell that has been running for over 98 Years, we are fortunate to have our own hall where we hold our weekly Beavers, Cubs and Scout Meetings. That said we have to have funds to run and maintain it and we would love to make some improvements. we would like to start with updating the lighting to more efficient LED resessed type lights that will reduce our energy costs and also allow us to do more within the hall with ball games and other activities without the danger of smashing them.
Our hall does need some TLC, we need to decorate the toilets and main hall, to give it a fresh look and make some repairs.
We have around 50 members ranging in ages from 5 1/2 to 14 1/2 and the group is run by 10 Leaders, and a handful of regular assistant.
As the world is going more digital, so is our training, badges and ideas. We would like to replace our out of date projector that is now 15 years old and needs a new bulb and filters, so again we would like to replace this with a Modern LED type that we can then use to deliver training for our Digital range of badges.
The current running cost for our group are covered by a mixture or monthly subs from our member and also events that we attend to do our fundraising, we need an extra boost like the Aviva Community Fund to allow us to make these improvements.
Many thanks for your support and receiving this would make a massive difference to our Group.
