£500 Award from Kent Police.

KentPolice2We were recently awarded £500 by Kent Police to purchase new archery and rifle shooting equipment, following our Fundraising Team’s successful application to the Kent Police Property Fund.

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.PoliceCheque

Sainsbury’s Local Heros

sainsburysLocal 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. Sainsburys
