The 32nd Bristol (1st Whitehall) Scout Group is a thriving Scout Group serving young people mainly from the the Whitehall, St George, Redfield and Easton areas of Bristol. We have Beaver Scouts (aged 6 to 8), Cub Scouts (aged 8 to 10½), Scouts (aged 10½ to 14) and Young Leaders (Explorer Scouts aged 14 to 18), all supported by a team of adult volunteers. We provide a varied and attractive programme for the boys and girls that enjoy Scouting, with the concentration on fun, challenge and adventure. Take a look at our photo album if you’d like to see some of the things we do. Donation help us with our work.
We’re part of The Scout Association (that co-ordinates Scouting across the UK) and proud to be part of world Scouting (with around 40 million members worldwide). The 32nd Bristol (1st Whitehall) Scout Group is an Excepted Charity with our own Constitution and Trustees.
Some of our income comes from monthly ‘subs’ paid by our members (currently £11.00 per month). This pays for our regular weekly activities and helps to fund some of our bigger events (i.e. SleepOvers, Camps, outings etc).
Some of our income comes from fundraising events, for examples Jumble Sales, selling Christmas Cards etc and sponsored events. This pays for us to run our Scout Headquarters (paying for insurance, electricity etc) and helps us purchase the equipment that is necessary to run Scouting.
We have also been fortunate to receive grants and donations to help fund specific projects and purchases. This helps us significantly with one-off costs (i.e. replacing some of our tents, purchasing safety equipment etc).
We are registered with HM Revenue and Customs to enable GiftAid to be added to donations from individuals.
We very much welcome donations (small or large). You may want to make a donation towards our general funds, or you may want to make a donation to help fully fund (or help fund) a specific item or project.
Please contact us via our website or call us on 0117 405 8326 if you would like to discuss making a donation.
We welcome approaches from individuals as well as companies and trusts etc.
