DIY SOS Calling all local tradesmen
Calling all local tradesmen, suppliers of toilets, wash basins, urinals, flooring and everything to make the toilets at Guideacre in Dronfield fit for purpose.
Our club has been asked for help by the Scouting leaders in Dronfield.
Their premises, Guideacre, was under water after a leak caused a devastating flood. They have worked very hard to put things right.
The toilets are a step too far for their DIY skills and they need the help of professionals.
Will you help with goods or your skills?
We believe that the Scouting Organisation is invaluable in showing kids and young people that there are exciting and challenging alternatives to joining gangs, crime or simply being fed up and bored!
Please help your Community
Dronfield DIY SOS
Call 07445050988 to say what you can do for the young people in our community.
Poppy Appeal 2016
The Poppy Appeal 2016 has now concluded. Thanks to all the volunteer collectors including the Air Training Cadets. Thanks also go to Sainsburys for allowing us to collect in store likewise Co-op and Aldi. And of course thanks to all who we know have given so generously. The total amount collected was £17,435.

The Poppy Appeal started to help those returning from the First World War. A century on from the start of that conflict, the Royal British Legion is still helping today's Armed Forces families in much the same way, whether coping with bereavement, living with disability, or finding employment. The poppy is a powerful symbol - it is worn to commemorate the sacrifices of our Armed Forces and to show support to those still serving today and their loved ones.
