Christmas Bag Packing
21st November 2010
Scouts from all over Swanley meet for their major Christmas fund raising event.
Once again, the ASDA Supermarket in Swanley kindly agreed to host our annual Christmas fund raising event known as Bag Packing.
This resulted in dozens of Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts from four of the Scout Groups in Swanley District helping ASDA shoppers by packing their bags for them, in return for non-obligatory donations.
Our Group's share was sufficient to pay just over half of the expected Scout Membership Subscription of £38 per member for this year.
So, thanks to all Parents for their support, and a big "Well Done" to all of the Scouts for their hard work!
All Scout leaders and helpers are volunteers. The Membership Subscription is to support the local, county and national headquarters in providing the invaluable support and resources that enables the Scouting movement to flourish.
As a result, Scouting remains one of the most affordable extra curricular activities for young people today.
