What we need from parents

The subscription is currently £ 25.00 for each of the three terms each year, paid at the start of each term. Please pay by cheque made payable to ‘Charlton Kings Scouts’ and write your child’s name and section (for example ‘Tuesday Cubs’) on the reverse.

Cubs receives about 40% of this money, the rest goes to the Scout Association and mainly covers insurance. The upkeep and maintenance of the Charlton Kings Scout Group headquarters is entirely funded by fundraising by the Executive Committee.

We need parents to help at Cubs at least once a term and we find most parents quite enjoy this – whether it is with craft activities, cooking, walks or sometimes just to maintain the correct Adult to child ratios for outdoor activities. In common with other organisations, we are required to ensure that all adults working with children are required to complete a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) application form before you can begin helping at Cubs.

It is useful to us if all parents can indicate any special interests, hobbies or skills they may have as this can sometimes be helpful when considering assistance with particular programme ideas. We always welcome help and if you would like to help on a more regular basis with this or any of the other sections or perhaps with fundraising, please let us know.
