How to Support Ham Scout Group
Ham Scout Group is a registered charity (number 303813). We
deliberatley keep subscription fees as low as possible as we
believe this is more socially inclusive. This means we have to
cover our costs through fundraising and donations. There are
several ways you can support us:
Contact us for more information.
- Give your time: Your time is more valuable to
us than your money! Consider becoming a uniformed leader or
assistant - you will get a lot out of it, learn new skills and gain
experience that will benefit your daily life and career. If not,
just offer to help the existing leaders at section meetings,
outings and other events. You can also help with the administration
of the group by joining the Group Executive
and help keep the group running behind the scenes.
- Help with our fundraising activities:
particularly Ham Fair, held on the second Satuday of June
each year. The group do most of the "heavy lifting" for this iconic
community event and there is always something you can do to help -
whether with the preparation, build, running our stalls or helping
the organising team or else clearing up afterwards. We also run
other fundraising events through the year. Keep in touch.
- Fundraise for us: You don't have to climb
Everest or swim the channel for us, but anything you can do by
yourself or as a team will be great. Let us
know and we will help.
- Make a donation: Make cheques payable to "Ham
Scout Group" and send to our treasurer or contact the treasurer for our bank details if you wish to make a
payment by direct transfer. There is a collection tin in the hut if
you wish to give cash.
