There are a number of fundraising events that are coming up to raise money for Billinsghurst Scout and Guide group funds
Billingshurst Fireworks – Saturday 21 October
The group will again be doing the teas at the fireworks. Fortunately they are fully staffed with Guide parents but donations of cakes to sell on the night would still be welcome. These can either be delivered to Sally MacPherson or to our GSL, Zoe Jenkins, at the hall on Friday evening during the Downlands Scout meeting (6.30pm to 8pm)
Bag packing at Tesco – Saturday 18 November
The Scouts and Guides will be bag packing at Tesco in Pulborough all day on 18 November. Although no Parbrook leaders are available, Cubs are welcome to join Dauxwood Cubs between 1300 and 1500 although there will be leaders there throughout the day. Cubs should be in uniform.
Billifest – Saturday 2 December
The weekend of our night at the museum camp sees the Billifest taking place in the High Street and Jengers Mead. The group is again running the refreshment stall. While this is under the watchful eye of Helen Pullen, she has asked for additional helpers to drop in and give her a break from time to time. In addition to selling refreshments the Billifest is also a useful showcase for the group and we hope that we might even find a few new leaders at the same time.
Monthly fun draw
The Group Exec is again running its monthly fun draw as a fundraiser for Scouts and Guides. Subscriptions of £10 per number must be paid by 22 October so that the first draw can take place at the Exec meeting at the end of the month. The monthly prize is £10 although there are two months with a £25 prize. More details and an entry form can be downloaded from http ://www . 1stbillingshurst . org . uk/fundraw2017 . pdf
Used postage stamps
The Guides continue to collect used postage stamps. There is a box in the kitchen where you can leave your donations.
