This section is devoted to the Troop Fundraising. We are aiming to improve our equipment and modernise it. A brief summary of our progress can be seen below. This year we are working towards purchasing new Patrol tents for the Scouts.

If you have any suggestions of  other ways we can fundraise, then please

 Litter Picking at Chelmsford Cricket Ground

This is an excellent and speedy method of making money. Our troop gets 100 per session which is put back into the troop and allows us to do more activities and buy better equipment for ourselves.

The Next session will be next year. Please bring as many people as you can. More people = less time!

Update 12.04.2010

We have been granted 2,000 to spend on new tents. Gary and Rob are currently pricing up to get 3 to 4 new Icelandic tents for the Scouts to use. We have also had our first 3 litter picking sessions of the year, raising 300 already! Well done to all!

Update 14.08.2009

We have been donated 250 from the Chelmsford Rotary for our help with providing tents and a water station for the Great Baddow Charity Fun Runs that took place earlier in the year!

Update 01.07.2009

The Scout Troop has used 900 of the money raised from the litter picking to purchase a set of benches to be used at events and on camps. The Scouts and parents are also varnishing to marine ply benches in order to make them last longer! A big thank you to everyone who helped out!

Update 23.04.2009

Update 12.04.2009

Any flood-lit litter picking sessions will raise 200 due to the wolume of work undertaken. We have booked 15 sessions this year.

Update 21.01.2009

2009 will see the Scout Troop fundraising again with Litter picking. At the Jamboree we updated a lot more of our equipment, including a new freezer box and gas lamps. We did not purchase new tents therefore that is our project for this year.

Update 14.07.2008

The leaders had a meeting last week and decided to purchase two new Icelandic style tents for the Essex Jamboree (26th July - 2nd August 2008) as well as numerous other items of equipement. Some of the  money from recent fundraising will also be used to give the Scouts badges to swap and kit them put with items on camp!

Update 10.04.2008

We have 14 litter picking sessions for the 26th Chelmsford this year. The Scout section will do 10 of the, giving us another 1,000 and the Cub section will be doing the other 4 sessions, giving them an extra 400. This type of fundrasing has been the most cost effective and money making. The first session took just under 25 minutes this year so we really appreicate all your continued help and support!!!!

Update 10.02.2008

Last year, we raised 900 from our 9 nine sessions and we shall be aiming to litter pick again in the summer of 2008. As a reward for everyone's hard work, we have a treat in store in the form of a weekend camp at Alton Towers in May.

Update 13.04.07

Firstly, a massive thank you to all those who helped out at our first Litter Pick of the year. We got it done in 30 mins so that works out at 42.50 an hour. The money we raise this year is going towards subsidising Troop events.

Update 03.03.07

We now have links to a large number of sites where you are able to purchase items. A proportion of the money then goes back into troop funds. This way you are able to treat yourself...and the troop!
