Why do we need to raise funds?

  1. To benefit good causes locally or around the world, and share a real sense of achievement from helping others.
  2. Supplement membership subscriptions to help provide extra activities for our young members.
  3. Pay for everyday running costs (heating, lighting, rates, council tax, etc).
  4. Pay for maintenance of hall, facilities, minibus, equipment and grounds.
  5. Special campaigns.
