Join the adventure!
There are lots of ways to get involved with the scout group. We are always looking for leaders and helpers but if that’s not up your street, there are many other roles that need filling:
Join the Fundraising Committee
We need enthusiastic people to organise events to raise funds for the group.
• Photographer – could you come along to events and take photos for us?
• Emptying the rag bin weekly – this raises valuable funds for the group.
• Sit on the executive committee – help support the group.
• DIY skills – can you help fix trailers, or other equipment?
• Admin and finance support for the group.
What will I get out of volunteering?
As well as gaining externally recognised skills and having a brilliant time, Scouting offers the chance to build on personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. The majority of Scouting volunteers believe that the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting have been of relevance to their working or personal lives. (We also provide coffee and biscuits at meetings!)
You can raise money for the Scout Group whenever you shop online at no cost to yourself. If you shop online via www.easyfundraising.org.uk, at one of over 2,000 retailers, a donation will be made to your nominated charity. Hopefully you will nominate Witney Buttercross Scout Group. For example Amazon will donate 2.5% of the cost of your transaction. Currently our supporters are raising over £100 per annum by using this website.
