Support & Fundraising
WE NEED A FUNDRAISING COMMITEE AND VOLUNTEERS PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU CAN HELP
We undertake several regular and one off fundraising activities. This goes towards vital hut renovation and funding exciting activities for your children. We always need fundraising volunteers, either to head up a committee or help at events.
Catering at the Capel Military Show
For the last two years the 24th have run the burger and hot dog catering at the Military Show in July along with Guides. This is a huge undertaking made possible through the hard work of leaders and parents helpers. The profits are shared between Scouts, Guides and the Military Show.

Waitrose Community Matters Coin Scheme
We were very happy to be selected for this scheme at Waitrose in Dorking during August 2019 and hope to be again. Please look out for us if you shop there.
We are always looking for community grants that we can apply for to renovate the hut.
In 2018 Mole Valley District Council awarded us a grant to assist with refurbishing our now tired but sturdy hut. Along with funds raised by the group we plan to use this to provide two new toilets, disabled access, a new kitchen, new heating, fire doors and a general overhaul.
This was all kick started by a generous legacy from a former Scout Mr Roy Mansell. We are grateful to him, Mole Valley and all contributors to our fundraising efforts.
This will provide a safe space for our young people and enable us to let the halls to the local community.
