Fundraising is a key means to keep the Group running and providing the Scouts with the activities and events that they want to take part in. In addition, we need to maintain, and at present, expand the Scout Hall.
Current Fundraising activities are:
The Annual Fairlight/Manly Christmas Tree Sale. This has been run every year in the first two weeks of December at Hinkler Park on Pittwater Rd – we think it’s been going for over 20 years…. That’s a lot of Christmas trees. Look for promotions for it late November. Get in early on the day for the tree of your choice!
Ivanhoe Park Scout Hall Renovation Project – URGENT voting closes 15 August 2019
This what we are renovating – A floor and a few walls would be good!! (as would a kitchen, toilets, light, etc.)
To achieve this we are running a program under MyCommunityProject with service.nsw.gov.au. You can help out by doing the following:
Dear Parents, Leaders and friends of Fairlight / Manly Scout Group
We need your help! Please vote for our My Community Project.
As you know we have been working really hard on a renovation project to restore the derelict bottom level of our scout hall. We have been fundraising for a few years but only have half the costs covered. We have applied for a community grant and made the shortlist but the finalists are decided by a community vote.
