Charity description

2nd Acomb (St Stephen's) Scout Group logo
2nd Acomb Scout Group provides scouting to young people aged between 6 and 14 years.
We are a vibrant group which provides fun and adventure for over 100 young people in the west of the City of York.We are a scout group based in York who give scouting to about 100 young people. We have different sections (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) they all do exciting and new things which help them achieve the aim of scouting - To contribute to the development of young people as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of the local community.

Our minibus was involved in a minor accident whilst on loan to another scout group earlier in the Autumn. As such it is uneconomical to repair. This is a devastating blow to our group who relied on the old workhorse to ensure we can continue to provide the activities and camps enabling us to provide the adventure we promise. We are now frantically working to raise funds to purchase a replacement bus as soon as possible. We would ask that you share our posts and information about fundraising events and tell everyone that you know about our plight and appeal for help. As a group we help support the local community and provide activities and adventure for almost 100 children and young people on a weekly basis. As you will have heard recently from Bear Grylls the Scout Association is going from strength to strength and is working hard to provide a fun environment to stop children from getting involved in gangs, keep them off the streets and into organised activities where their energy can be channeled and their enthusiasm harnessed to help them to reach their full potential. The minibus is pivotal to this so that we can keep a varied and expansive program running.
