Fundraising

Our Scout Troop runs various fundraising events throughout the year. This enables them to provide an adventurous programme that is accessible to all.

Some of their key events include:
  • The Comedy Works - live stand-up comedy hosted at The Playhouse in Walton-on-Thames.
    Full details and tickets available online at www.thecomedyworks.co.uk

  • Hersham Trees - we sell premium quality Christmas trees, with free delivery to our local area, plus we'll recycle trees in the New Year. Orders are taken from the start of November each year.
    Details at www.hershamtrees.org.uk

  • Hersham Festival - for one weekend each July we open our HQ to the community and host the Hersham Festival, a combination of live music, family entertainment, stand-up comedy, huge varieties of food and drink and (hopefully) plenty of sunshine too!
    Details, tickets etc available at www.hershamfestival.org

  • Plus a selection of smaller events (BBQ's, race nights, quiz nights and so on) which all contribute valuable funds in addition to providing great social opportunities for our community.

As well as raising money for their own adventures, our Troop has raised money for several other charities. Recent examples include the Princess Alice Hospice, Help for Heroes, the Scouts NZ Christchurch Earthquake appeal and Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue.
