Spring Fundraising Update

Welcome to our Spring fundraising update, letting you know what’s going on in 3rdCB and how you can support your Scout Group.

We Need Your Ideas

This year is now well underway and the fundraising team are busy planning events to get everyone involved. To help us do this, we would really appreciate any ideas that you may have for events you would like to see throughout the year. Don’t worry, we’re not asking you to run them, we just need some ideas! Any ideas you have please email Megan and the team at fundraising@3rdcb.org.uk or jot it down and drop it into The Den on any section night. Continue reading Spring Fundraising Update

Awards all round at Presentation Evening

On Saturday 18 January we held our annual presentation evening, reviewing our adventures and activities over the past year, celebrating the achievements of our Beavers, Cubs, Sea Scouts and Explorers in 2019, and giving out prizes and awards.

Thank you to The Worshipful Mayor of Southend, Cllr John Lamb, for presenting the awards and prizes, and to Leigh Road Baptist Church for their superb support.

In total we gave out 22 awards for teamwork, improving skills and setting an outstanding example, as well as a number of Chief Scout’s and Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards.

Safety Boat Fundraising supported by Co-op Community Fund

We’re excited to have been selected by the Co-op in Leigh as one of the local causes for their Community Fund for the next year. We’re raising funds for a new safety boat, allowing us to expand the opportunities we can offer for activities afloat, getting even more young people out on the water learning new skills, team work and self-reliance.

By signing up as a Co-op member and selecting to support 3rdCB, we get 1% of everything that you spend on Co-op branded products and services. In a previous round a couple of years ago this funding raised over £3,000 for 3rdCB, and paid for one of our  new RS Quest sailing dinghy!

All you need to do is sign in to your Co-op account if you have one – or sign up if not (it only costs £1) – and nominate us as your local cause, then remember to swipe your co-op card every time you shop in store. This is an amazing opportunity for us and we’re really grateful to Co-op for this support, so please sign up and support your Scout Group.
