The South London Scouts - Scoutdown to Christmas 2020

We are proud to launch The South London Scouts ”Scoutdown to Christmas 2020”. This aim of this event is to help groups get back to Scouting in 2021 (as soon as appropriate), and encourage collaboration and communication across the county. All South London Scouts members, friends and family are able to play, however only South London Scouts members are able to receive a prize. This is simply as the majority of prizes have been geared at helping local groups and we aim to ensure that we include as many local groups as is practically possible.

A HUGE thank you to the generosity of those providing the prizes! ! !

 

In brief, there will be a daily Facebook post. All you need to do is open the door, and nominate your section / group / unit in the comments to win the price. Winning entrants will be selected at random (you have to be in it to win it), and prizes large and small are spread throughout the month. It’s going to be a blast! ! !
