The subscriptions payable to the Group are to cover the costs associated with running a Scout Group and go towards:
The cost is £102.00* per child/per year and is preferably payable by Standing Order of 12 monthly payments of £8.50. Alternatively subscriptions can be paid at the start of each school term at a cost of £34.00 per child/per term.
At our recent Annual General Meeting, it was agreed that our Subscriptions will be increasing to £10 per child, per month. This new rate will be effective from January 1st 2022.
It is the Group's policy that no child should be excluded because their family is experiencing financial difficulties. Please contact the Group Scout Leader or Chairman, IN CONFIDENCE, if you are finding it difficult to meet your child's Scouting costs.
If you pay Income Tax, then the Group can claim Gift Aid, set against the tax that you will have paid on the amount of your child/childrens subscription. It means that we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give, at absolutley NO COST TO YOU
So, for your £102.00 per year subs.......
we can claim an extra £25.50 back from HMRC
The Gift Aid scheme increases our income and more importantly helps to keep down the cost of Subscriptions.
It is important that you tell us if you don't pay Income Tax.
