Fundraising season a great success

December and January are Kidlington Scout Group's busiest time for fundraising, with our three main events: Christmas Post; Bag packing at Sainsbury's and our ScoutRail model railway exhibition all just weeks apart.

All three events in December 2015/January 2016 were incredibly well supported by both members of our Scout Group and people from Kidlington and beyond. We delivered several thousand Christmas cards, spent a whole Sunday packing shopping in return for donations, and more than a thousand visitors came along to our model rail show.

These events are essential to fund the upkeep of our headquarters building in Kidlington and our boat base on the river Thames in Wolvercote. Thanks to the tremendous support of all our events, and also to some generous donations throughout the year, our Scout Group is in a great position to start 2016 and offer all our members and exciting year ahead.

To all those members, volunteers and supporters, THANK YOU!
