If you pay income tax, 1st Crawley Scout Group can use Gift Aid to claim 25p for every £1 you give in subscriptions or donations. This enables us to keep the Group subscriptions down at a reasonable level.

All you need to do is sign and return the Gift Aid Declaration that is included in our Welcome Pack. Alternatively, this can be collected automatically for us if you would kindly use Virgin Money Giving and remember to check the option to allow the Scout Group to reclaim Gift Aid on your monthly donation.

Why Virgin Money Giving?

Virgin Money Giving is a not-for-profit business operated by Virgin Money. It's designed to help charities such as 1st Crawley Scout Group collect and manage donations. The way they help us collect Gift Aid alone is worth its weight in gold!

You control your donation, not us. We just have the tools to know what funds we'll receive each month so we can manage our expenditure accordingly.

What Will It Cost?
Gift Aid
There is a £20 joining fee which is used to pay for a group t-shirt, group scarf plus any books and badges that your son/daughter will get when they are invested.

At the time of writing (Feb'17) we are preparing to increase subs to £15 per month as they have remained unchanged at £12 per month since Sept'11.

Subs are payable once your son/daughter is invested. This money is used to cover, for example, the cost of meeting materials, badges, hire of the hall and upkeep of equipment. These subscriptions are payable monthly in advance Virgin Money Giving. Please click here to access the correct Virgin Money Giving page.

These subscriptions also cover a child's annual Scout Association membership fee, approximately £40, which is paid on their behalf by the Group to Scout Headquarters, for the day-to-day running of the Association. This membership fee includes insurance for all members of the Group.

We don't want cost to stop anyone joining or participating. If cost is an issue or you are unable to use Virgin Money Giving for any reason, please speak to your section leader or the Group Scout Leader in confidence. We'll do what we can to help.
