August 2010 - Charitable Trust
The people who brought you SCOUT AND PROUD are currently in the process of setting up a Charitable Trust. We will be having the first meeting of the Trustees at Gilwell Reunion 2010 and should finish and sign all the paperwork then.

The aims of the Trust will be to support young people involved in Scouting and Guiding to get the most out of their activities and also to help the adults who support young people in Scouting and Guiding.

In the past we have informally helped the following projects and we hope that in the future we can continue to support these type of ventures financially.

• Supporting the King Jesus School, an orphanage in Ghana, which some of the unit members helped to build.
• Grants to help other Districts send members to the World Scout Jamboree in 2007 (Districts were chosen through a prize draw)
• Helping with a primary healthcare project in Mityana in Uganda
• Sending members of the Scout Network to the Mafeking Moot in South Africa
• Sending a member of the Scout Network to the 18th New Zealand Jamboree
• Helping to send Scout Networks, Explorers, Rangers, Young Leaders and Leaders to EuroJam in 2005, both as participants and staff
• Helping with Northumberland Scout County Gifts for Peace Project at a school in Bogota, Colombia
• Supporting school children in Newcastle to build a school in Costa Rica
• Donating money to a Bill Quay Community Farm in Gateshead
• Sending Network members to the world Scout Moot in Kenya

Keep a look out on this site for details of how to apply for a grant to support your Area. We will hopefully be posting details before Christmas.
