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).

Payment can be made by cheque, payable to ‘1st Wychwoods Scout Group’ or by direct transfer to the Group bank account using the Sort code 40-52-40 and Account Number 00023730. Please include your child’s surname as reference so we can track who has paid).

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 their meetings. Some other activities such as camps, may incur extra costs.

We can claim the income tax paid 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. T

To enable us to do this though 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.
