5th Woodley Scout Group is funded through subscriptions, fundraising and grants. We are all volunteers, and all money goes on the upkeep of the hut, equipment, insurance, electricity/rates, and capital reserves for the rebuild of our hut, as well as extra activities within the Group.
Fundraising events include our Pagoda Sales held in Woodley Precinct twice a year (in March and October) and at both the Woodley Carnival (where we hold our famous “Smash The Crockery” stall as well as prize tombollas and more) and the Woodley Winter Extravaganza. We ask parents and leaders to donate items to sell or smash and we aim to raise over £500 at each event.We have for the past few years been involved in part of the Reading Rock Festival clear up brigade, and we are therefore at our Autumn Pagoda Sale able to offer nearly new camping equipment, tents and wellies for bargain prices. Come and see what bargains you can find.
