Minibus Fundraising

Minibus Fundraising. Cuffley Scouts. Volunteers.


April 2024 update

In  spring 2021 we launched a fundraising initiative to replace our old minibus. It was an iconic 15-year-old LDV Convoy which we reluctantly scrapped as it became increasingly impractical to maintain and use. Its exhaust emissions prevented us from driving on many roads within greater and outer London. The capacity and weight placed an unwanted limit to our pool of licensed drivers. The roof leaked and its only cabin comforts were reluctant to open windows!

Through operating and managing a minibus for the exclusive use of our members we afford our section leaders an extra dimension to the scope of the meetings and activities they may plan and deliver. Additionally, as we’ve learned from the COVID lockdowns, the introduction back of our own transport will greatly augment the adventure and support we offer our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers. We really owe it to them to be out, about, earning an amazing array of badges, awards, challenges and skills for life!
We’re working hard to ensure this project is fulfilled in an timely and effective way. So far we’ve raised nearly 75% of our original £20,000 target. This is a good start but there’s still a long way to go.  So, as someone taking an interest in our Scout Group (after all you are reading this post!) please will you help us? You may:
  • make a donation, plus Gift Aid, where appropriate, by visiting the original GoFundMe page we’ve set-up specifically for this campaign;
  • or you may prefer to look out for and support through joining our fundraising sub committee and shaping the future fundraising initiatives we arrange;
  • helping us spread news of  fundraising initiatives as they happen.
Cuffley Scout Group is a small registered charity (no 302555)
