First of all a Happy New Year to you all and I hope you had an excellent Christmas.
As many of you are now aware 3rd CB bought the former Fisherman’s Yard next door to The Den and over the next couple of years the Group will be fund raising enough money to build on this land and of course still be able to maintain The Den, our fleet of boats and continue to organise the varied activities and trips we run for the children.
To help us raise these funds, all of January 3rd CB is signed up for the Waitrose Community Matters initiative at the Waitrose Leigh branch on the London Road. This is where Waitrose every month donates £1000 between three local good causes that you choose.
If you have never shopped in Waitrose before, at the checkout you’ll receive a green token, which you then place in the box (which can be found by the entrance/exit) of the good cause you’d most like to support . The more tokens we get, the bigger the donation we receive. So inform all your family, friends, neighbours that the next time they are in Waitrose Leigh, to place their green token in the box marked 3rd Chalkwell Bay Sea Scout Group!
