What is my son or daughter’s annual subscription used for?

Around £41 per young person is passed on to the Scout Association in membership fees. The balance is retained by the section for day-to-day running expenses (eg buying the craft materials used at section meetings). None of the annual subscription is used to help fund the cost of running and maintaining the Scout Hall and buying equipment, etc. The Group relies on fundraising activities to raise the £17,000 or so that that costs each year.
