Scouts and Guides
You can raise money with the Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Guides, Brownies etc. by either selling to the public via a Gift Stall at an event, or holding a Gift Shop Night for all your Scouts.
Gift Shop Night
If you advertise the gift night well, then almost all the Scouts will bring in money as they will all get a chance to browse and choose a gift/gifts. We recommend that in your advertising you suggest a maximum amount children can bring (for example £6 per child - two gifts). This helps prevent youngsters bringing all their pocket money in and spending too much, but also gives parents some guidance about how much money they should send in - as well as giving you an idea of how much stock to order.
You lay out all the gifts in the hall and sell! All you need are volunteers to run the shop for a couple of hours, or the Scouts can take turns manning the stalls for each other.
Each gift costs you just £2 + VAT. If you sell at the recommended £3 then you make 60p - £1 per gift sold (depending on your VAT status).
Don't worry if you are unsure of how many gifts to order. We provide a returns service for up to 50 gifts. This is FREE for your first order and only £5 for subsequent orders.
