A little help from Black Friday
Trustees Week 2018
With over £1.4 billion spent across Black Friday weekend, it’s a great opportunity to raise money for 11th Folkestone Scouts with every online purchase you make, and, it’s completely FREE! If you use easyfundraising when shopping online, retailers like Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com, eBay, Boden, and M&S will then make a small donation to say, “thank you”. To find out about how you can help us raise as much as possible, visit https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/11thfolkestonescouts/ Thank you!
Trustees’ Week: 12-16 November 2018 What are trustees? Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They help to make the UK the sixth most giving country in the world. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work. Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference. It’s also a chance for us to say ‘THANK YOU’ to our trustees on the Group Executive Committee for all their hard work behind the scenes that keep the Group running and growing.
Not long to go until Christmas! Remember to use #easyfundraising when you’re buying your Christmas gifts online. We want to raise as much as possible this year and it couldn’t be easier through #easyfundraising! https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/11thfolkestonescouts/
