1st Castleberg (Settle) Scout Group

Charity description

1st Castleberg (Settle) Scout Group logo
Thank you for visiting the 1st Castleberg (Settle) Scouts page on My Donate.
Every year the Scouts help 400,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
1st Castleberg Scouts currently provide these opportunities to around 100 children and young people from Settle and the surrounding area through our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers groups.
We value our links with the local community and are grateful for the depth of good will and practical support we receive from local people. In return we strive to help our young people become responsible, well rounded and contributing members of society. And we aim to do that in ways which are fun, provide new experiences and challenges and which we hope will provide a foundation for our young people's further growth later on.

Our leaders and parent helpers give their time generously and freely but there are still costs in providing Scouting. Maintenance of our Drill Hall (itself an important historic building), services charges and insurance all add up. We keep our subscription charges as low as possible so that no child is excluded financially. However, that means that we rely on donations to help continue our work with young people. As a charity we receive no Government funding and are always very grateful for any donations, large or small.

Currently we have plans to extend our Drill Hall. Our most pressing need is to provide Disabled Access so that every child can access Scouting easily, irrespective of physical ability. At the same time we hope to improve Drill Hall facilities, making it a more versatile building, better able to meet our current needs and the needs of other users in the wider community.

Can you help us continue providing young people with adventures and lasting
memories? Thank you.
