1ST GREAT LUMLEY SCOUT GROUP 

We promote the development of young people by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training based on Scout Promise and Law and guided by adult leadership. This takes the form of various indoor and outdoor camps along with other groups locally and internationally, and also various fund raising activities, as well as day trips to a variety of educational establishments.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been very successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and a Community Foundation
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 47 years
