The Kent Police Property Fund holds money generated from the sale, at auction, of unclaimed lost property and items seized in police operations. All the money raised at such auctions is used to help local charities support their work in the local community.
Maggie and Jim Lilleycrop kindly accepted the cheque on behalf of 5th Dartford Scouts.
Local Heroes is Sainsbury’s scheme to recognise and reward the amazing contribution their staff make to charities and activities in the local community. The scheme offers matched funding for employees raising funds for charity and one such hero is Christina Boyd, who raised £190 for the 5th Dartford Scout Group this September, which Sainsbury’s have matched. This generous contribution is in addition to our status as Sainsbury’s Crayford’s local charity of the year where the staff and management are going all out to help us with our fundraising for our programme of adventurous activities for our young members. Well done Christina and thank you Sainsbury’s.
Asda Living at Prospect Place, Dartford has accepted the 5th Dartford Scout Group’s Leigh Pack as one of their community charities [little green disc you get at the checkout] for the next two months, to be split 50/50 with the pack and the new hall fund.
Hopefully this will bring in some much needed funds as the winner gets the bulk of the collection, so don’t forget to put your counters in our collection.
Well done to all the leaders and young members of the 5th Dartford Scout Group who represented us at the Dartford Masonic Centre’s craft fair on Sunday 27 October. As always, the centre generously rewarded our efforts with a share of the admissions, which on this occasion totaled £300. Scouts should remember to log your hours for the Kent Scout Volunteer Award.
