Message from Kate Hilton.
Following the amazing success of last year’s Beckenham fireworks event we are asking your club to support us again by becoming a volunteer marshal for our 2018 event.
The date is Saturday 3rd November at Croydon Recreation Ground in Beckenham.
This is a fantastic event organised by volunteers like you who are local to Beckenham. Last year was a great success and money that we raised was distributed back to charities within this area.
In addition to raising money for the 5th Beckenham South Scout Group and other local Scout Groups, the display enables the Scouts to help other charities and worthy causes including the ones you, as a marshal, might be looking to assist.
After the 2017 Display over £10,000 was donated to such causes including over £1,000 to St Christopher’s Hospice, and a thousand pounds each to Demelza’s Children’s Hospice, Bromley Diabetes UK, Lewisham Hospital Geriatric Care, The Primrose Centre (Farnborough), and Kids & Crew. These donations were to fund specific purposes, not just running costs. Smaller amounts were also donated to other local causes in and around Beckenham and Penge.
There will be 2 firework displays, a fun fair and lots of food stalls. We need volunteers to help us cover the period from 3pm to 10pm.
It takes a few minutes to register your support. Sign up HERE.
We hope you can join us.
