3rd Chalkwell Bay is a registered charity, run by a team of dedicated volunteers (no one in the team is paid). We rely on fundraising, grants and donations, along with our members subscriptions, to keep the Group running and ensure Scouting in Old Leigh is affordable for all.
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.
If you would like to make a donation we are working with Just Giving 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 get in touch with us.
Taking part in an event?
Running a marathon, taking part in a cycle ride or any other charity event. Why not choose 3rd Chalkwell Bay as your nominated charity. We can help out with publicity and are set up online with Just Giving to take the hassle out of sponsorship money.

EasyFundraising – raise money while you shop
3rdCB have also teamed up with EasyFundraising, which gives us a donation every time you buy something online from a huge range of stores. It’s free to sign up and really simple to use. 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!
This brings us in donations from hundreds of the most popular websites – raising over £2,000 so far! Sign up and shop at easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/3rdchalkwellbayssg/ Over 4,000 shops and sites will donate, including all the big names like eBay, John Lewis & Partners, Argos, ASOS, Expedia, M&S, Just Eat, Uswitch and many more! You can even install a simple reminder on your favourite browser that tells you when the site you’re on will give us a donation. This is really easy to do and takes only a couple of minutes to set up, plus it raises a significant amount for the group.
If you are a UK taxpayer, we are able to claim back an additional 25% on all donations and membership fees you pay from HMRC, which over the course of a year is a significant amount of money. For parents, if you’ve not already signed up for GiftAid, please log into Online Scout Manager and sign up using the GiftAid link on the left – it takes about 5 seconds and costs you absolutely nothing!
