Get our scouts to Kandersteg!!

£7,725 of £9,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 21 months
The 15th Stourbridge (St Michael) Scout Group (Norton Scouts) is a scout group based in Stourbridge in the West Midlands.  Our aim is to take a group of scouts to the Kandersteg International Scout Centre (KISC) in Switzerland during the summer of 2019.

We are hoping to fund-raise over the preceding 18 months so that we can subsidise the cost of the trip, enabling as  many scouts to come along as possible and also purchase essential kit and equipment to take with us and for continued use by the scout group. 

KISC was set up in 1923, from a vision of Lord Baden-Powell's where there would be one centre, where all scouts, from all over the world, could come together to celebrate the scouting movement.

Please help us to send the scouts on their way ...

So, here we are, just 5 months until our trip to Kandersteg, and our fundraising is at full throttle! We have done so well so far and people have been very generous! We have a few more events up our sleeve and want to make a big push now to raise as much as we can, to make this trip something our scouts will never forget! Thank you to all those who have already contributed and to those who have turned up, time and time again to help us get there - we really do appreciate it!

Hello again - just thought I would give a bit of an update on how we are doing with our fund-raising. So far we have managed to raise an amazing £3,324 pounds by selling photo trails and cakes, doing sealed bid auctions, having bag packs, raffles at craft fayres and our World Cup fun day - which was a great success. We have had to spend a little bit out - buying prizes for the fun day, buckets for our bag packs and a few bits and pieces here and there, so the total amount raised so far is £3085.90. Thank you to all who have helped us get to this amount. We have lots more planned over the next 12 months - at least 2 more bag packs (and hopefully another 2 next year), a few more craft fayres, I shall be doing a sponsored run later in the summer - there will be challenges involving eating chocolate (oh yes!) and maybe one more big event before we head off for Switzerland. I have changed our target to £7000, which would be fantastic and help us buy much needed kit and equipment to take with us, as well as subsiding the cost of the trip for all those involved in our fund-raising. Thanks for all your help so far - and watch this space for more "fun"draising!!!
