3rd Chalkwell Bay is a registered charity, run by a team of dedicated volunteers. We rely on donations and fundraising, along with our members subscriptions, to keep the Group running and ensure Scouting in Old Leigh affordable for all.
We currently have two capital projects that we are raising money for, which you can find out more about below.
Building a new boating centre adjacent to our current HQ in Old Leigh to expand training opportunities for young people. Learn more…
Replacing our fleet of Wanderer dinghies to improve and expand sailing training.
How you can help
Over the course of a year we run a number of fundraising events, from quizzes and curry nights to large events like Old Leigh Regatta. The Scouts are always involved in these events and families are welcome and encouraged to join in too. Scroll down for a list of our current fundraising events.
3rdCB have also teamed up with EasyFundraising, which gives us a donation every time you buy something online from a huge range of stores including Amazon, eBay, Argos, Expedia and Tesco. It’s free to sign up and really simple to used. Once you’ve signed up every time you buy online, take a look on the Easy Fundraising site to see if your favourite shop is listed. If you buy, they donate a small percentage of the value back to 3rdCB – but you still pay the same price in the shop! Click here to find out more and sign up.
If you would like to make a donation we are working with the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) to receive these online using the form below, or please contact a member of the leader team. If you work for a company who sponsors youth projects, have skills to offer, have fundraising ideas or can help out with events or grant submissions please let us know.
By signing a Giftaid declaration we are able to claim back an additional 25% on all donations and subscriptions from HMRC, which over the course of a year is a significant amount. For parents, if you’ve not already filled out a Giftaid form, please download one here and return it to your child’s section leader.
