The 25th Sheffield (Ecclesfield) Scout Group is completely self-funded. Over the last 5 years, our annual spend has been between around £15,000 to £22,000 (and we have to provide the Charity Commission with an annual report each year)?

Typically, funding is provided by the subscriptions paid on behalf of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Our subscriptions are paid on a monthly basis, and the details are available on our Payment Details page.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid lets us reclaim tax on donations you have made to us. You can complete our Gift Aid declaration form on our Gift Aid page. We’ll take care of the rest.

You are a UK taxpayer if:

  • Tax is taken from your wages at source (i.e. PAYE)

  • You fill out a self-assessment form

  • You have any taxable savings (in a building society, for instance), or a pension plan, or investment income

  • You have paid capital gains tax, or expect to pay it in the near future

Fundraising Team

We also have a fundraising team which meets on a regular basis to discuss ideas for raising money to spend on improving the hut and its facilities. If you would like to join the team, please Contact Us .

Easy Fundraising

A simple and easy way that everyone can raise funds for the Group is by using the Easy Fundraising website when you do any shopping on the Internet. Instead of going directly to your shopping site of choice, you first go to and then click through to where you want to go. It costs you nothing extra, but raises money for your charity of choice. We are listed on Easy Fundraising here. For more information on how it works, go here.
