At the current time, subscriptions are £35 per term and are due in January, May and September (after the school Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays).
The Subscriptions help to cover the cost of using the school hall as well as things like badges and materials for activities carried out at meetings. Some other activities such as camps, may incur extra costs.
We can claim Gift Aid on all the monies that are paid to us. This includes money paid for subscriptions, capitation and activity costs. This means that for every £1 paid to the Group we can claim 25p back from the Inland Revenue. In addition to being an easy fund raising method, it means that we can keep costs of activities as low as possible.
To enable us to do this you need to fill in a Gift Aid Declaration form. The charity name is ‘The Scout Association’ and the donation referred to is the £35 subscription fee.
