Giving a bit

You may have heard about, they pass a portion of referral fees earned through purchase made via their site to a charity of your choice. 1st Taxal Scout Group are now a available to select as the charity you want to support.

Every time you shop online at one of the participating shops, by clicking through from it turns a donation for your chosen charity. With over 1,200 shops, including Amazon, Sainsbury's, Groupon & John Lewis, you can buy everything from music to car insurance and make a difference!

All you have to do is register on their website and access your favourite shops through them. In return the Scout group gets either a fixed fee or a percentage of your spend. It costs you nothing, and it costs the group nothing. In addition they often have deals and offers on the web site.

We are down as 1st Taxal (Whaley Bridge) Scout Group in the "find a good cause to support"  on the right hand side menu or follow this link:

Coffee Morning Success

Wendy and Dave Hall

We have now added up all the money from Saturday's coffee morning and it was a great success. In all we have raised nearly £250 for the group.

We had a fantastic turnout of people, donations of raffle and tombola and some wonderful cakes. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way especially to the people who helped on the day.

The 1st prize in the raffle (one night's Bed and Breakfast at a Hallmark Hotel) was won by Wendy and Dave Hall (pictured being presented with their prize). Many congratulations and we hope you enjoy your trip.
