The Scout group for boys and girls aged from 6 to 14, offers weekly activities, weekend camps, days out and the learning of new skills.

Angela Burns, Group Scout Leader, commented: “Scout camps are an integral part of the camping experience and without easyfundraising.org.uk’s input we would have struggled to maintain and replace our camping  equipment.”

easyfundraising.org.uk Managing Director Gary Thompson said: “The Foresters have worked hard to raise funds and we congratulate them for pulling together and achieving such a great success.”

easyfundraising.org.uk helps thousands of good causes including schools, sports clubs, scout groups and local causes, as well as national charities. So far, easyfundraising has raised more than £2.4 million for good causes and is on target to raise an additional £1 million in 2011.
