Fundraising

Our Rainbow, Brownie, Guide and Senior Section leaders (eight between us, including two who run more than one section) came together to run a fundraising night this week just gone.

One leader is going to the World Scout Jamboree in Japan next year, one is going to Our Cabana in Mexico, another to Poacher Camp and seven out of eight of us are going to Pax Lodge for a county weekend.

So this evening was a fundraiser to help all of us, and we asked parents who had asked how they can thank us for the time we give up to bring their girls and take part.
We deliberately scheduled it first week back so only those who wanted to take part would come, if we had started back and then run it, we felt they would feel obliged to participate.

We ran the following:
*badgemaking
*guess the name of the cuddly reindeer and win it
*make a Christmas decoration
*raffle for a Disney princess room decoration
*guess the weight of the cake
*make windmills and keyrings
*make loomband bracelets or buy a ready made one
*buy craft kits
*buy dressing up clothes
*make peace doves
*some Japanese stuff (that table was opposite side of room from me and I didn't see what they were doing!)
*drinks and lollies
*guess the weight of the cake

Most of the items were very easy to put together, or we already had them so very little cost. It was also a fun and chilled way to hang out and talk to parents when not stressed or in a rush.
