WE NEED YOUR HELP IN RAISING FUNDS FOR OUR NEW SCOUT HOUSE We are always looking for parents to find new sponsors who are willing to give a very small, tax free, donation. These funds normally go towards the tri-annual Scout visit to France. However this year the 53rd have pledged all profits from fund raisers to go towards the 53rd’s contribution for their exciting new Scout House.
WHAT IS THE SCOUTS ANNUAL FROG RACE? The Frog Race is a fun night out for the whole family and everyone can be involved. We have six wooden frogs and the aim is to get your frog to the finish line before the others. Their are prizes for the winning frogs, riders and sponsors.
SPONSORS ARE NEEDED FOR EACH OF OUR RACES – CAN YOU HELP If you are willing to help or can obtain sponsorship, perhaps from a/your local employer or someone you know who owns a local business, advertising at just £30 is a snip. Please contact Norman at the Scout House on a Friday evening or on the telephone number provided below. Please give us as much advance notice as possible so we can get the programme finalised as early as possible.
PLEASE CAN YOU SELL AS MANY TICKETS AS POSSIBLE Tickets cost £10.00 each for Adults and £8.00 for Children which includes a fish ‘n chip supper (£8.00 for Jumbo Sausage) – we are happy for parents or siblings to share a meal. A bar is available on the evening and well behaved children are extremely welcome. If anyone wishes a different option to fish, please let Norman know.
ALSO No race would exist without jockeys, just £3.00 per frog, you will hopefully ride it to glory with a prize for the winner. Remember to bring plenty of change.
The ‘NLRF’ (National League of Racing Frogs) only allow us to subject each frog to a specific number of races and therefore there will only be 48 frogs to name (8 races of 6 frogs).
To book tickets for the evening, please downloard the printable form below and hand it with your cheque/cash to one of the leaders. Alternatively telephone Norman Thompson on 01676 533268.
