We are delighted to report that we've received our first cheque, for £89.78, from our EasyFundraising webshop. Many thanks to all who have contributed towards this by using the shop. You may recall that this shop pays commission quarterly, posting a cheque a month after the end of each quarter. So this cheque represents purchases made between March and June.
The Scouting Centenary celebrations have prompted a higher than average number of camps this year, and this in turn this has led to an increase in the cost to the Group of badges! We hope that the income we receive from our fundraising ventures (including Webb Ivory, and our BuyAt and EasyFundraising webshops) will enable us to continue to provide badges without having to make a charge.
