Fundraising Month

Donation Goal Detail

End Date

In the month of June we are launching a fund raising competition.  We want to see who can raise the most money for the Welwyn Scout Group.  Prizes will be awarded to the young people from each section  (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) who raise the most money.

Last year we raised just over £1,000 during Welwyn festival week.  This year we want to smash that and have set our target to raise £1,500 during fund raising month.  Can you help us!

Get your thinking caps on.  What are your children (or you) going to do to raise money for the Scout group.  You could do a sponsored walk, run, cycle, silence.  You could make and sell cakes or biscuits.

Duck Sales


This is a fun and easy way to raise money. At the end of the Welwyn Fun Day (on 30th June) we run a district famous Welwyn Duck Race. We release 1,000 rubber ducks into the Mimram river and they “race” down the river to the bridge. Each duck is numbered and can be backed for £1 each in advance. 1st Prize £50, 2nd Prize £30, 3rd prize £20. You can start raising money for the competition by “selling” ducks to your friends and family in advance. For each £10 you raise we will send you a list of numbers to give to your friends of family. You can either donate by clicking on the button below or you can bring the money to the next meeting in an envelope with your child’s name, section, money raised, your email address (so we can send you the numbers) and the words Duck Race on the front.

Note:  if you sell ducks during Welwyn festival week any funds you raise will be also included in your total donation towards the prize.  More details on this to follow

Once you have raised your funds please click the button below to donate, or bring your money along to the next meeting in a sealed envelope with your child’s name, section and money raised on the front.  to the next meeting This will then be added to the totaliser.

Can you help

We also need a number of volunteers to help run the scout led events during the Welwyn festival. We can usually raise over £1,000 during the festival so any help you can provide would really be appreciated. The dates where we need help are:

  • 16th June – Street Market (08:30 to 13:00) + Duck Sales
  • 24th June – Welwyn 10k (10:15 to 13:15) – Car Park monitor
  • 30th June – Welwyn Fun Day (12:30 to 16:00) – Car Park Monitor + Duck Sales

Each slot will be 1.5 hours. If you can help for or more slots during the Welwyn festival week please click here to choose your options on doodle poll

We are also looking for a couple of super volunteers to take the lead and co-ordinate the fund raising activity on one or more of the dates above. This would involve planning for the day, co-ordinating the volunteers, making sure you have all the equipment (e.g. Ducks for the duck sales) on the day. So if you and/or your child would like to lead one of the dates above please post a comment below and we’ll get back to you.
