1st Kiama Scout Group have been actively involved in the planning, organising and running of a variety of fundraisers with funds going towards both the group and various charities.
Some of these have included:
The Venturers held a Trivia Night to practice their organisation and planning skills. The funds raised from this night went to the unit to purchase unit supplies and subsidies entry to events and course through out the year.
Every year the Scouts or Venturers run Operation Christmas Child. This year they managed to put together and fill due to donations from families and friends 55 gift boxes for underprivileged children living in 3rd world conditions.
Our Venturer Leader with the help of the Venturers organised and hosted a Mad Hatter Themed Murder Mystery High Tea to raise the money to send the Operation Christmas Child Gift Boxes overseas. This was a huge success and thanks to the Group for Matching the amount of money we raised for this great cause.
The Kiama Lions Club partnered up with 1st Kiama Scout Group to take part in their annual Lions Club Raffle.
Big thank you to them for their support throughout the year and for this opportunity.
This year we repainted the Hall with a donation from Bunnings Warehouse for Paint and Equipment. The Kiama Lions Club came on board and provided the man power to knock over the painting, with the help of the venturers in one day.
Kiama Tourism and The Lachlan Valley Railway have provided the 1st Kiama Scout Group a 64 Seat Carriage where all money raised from the ticket sales will go to the group as a fundraising donation. Thank you so much!
Everyone loves a Gingerbread House at Christmas. This year we have a Gingerbread House Night where you can purchase a Gingerbread House to build on the night or a take home kit. The money raised from this event will go back towards the 1st Kiama Scout Group, supporting the Youth of Kiama through scouting!
