Lighting up outdoor space at 1st Beaumaris Sea Scouts
The 1st Beaumaris Sea Scouts hall is home to scouting groups including Joeys, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers, almost 100 youths in total. Unfortunately the area outside the hall is currently unable to be used after dark as there is no outdoor lighting available. We are seeking funding for the purchase and installation of flood lights, which will enable our members to safely participate in outdoor scouting activities after dark when the various groups meet.
The major costs associated with the project are
Purchase of flood lights Electrician's labour costs associated with installation of lighting Installation of outdoor lighting for the scout hall will need safety switches and a mains current limiting circuit breaker. A formal quote of $1331.00 has been obtained.
The $1,000 grant will be used
Lighting, safety switches & circuit breaker: $616.00Electrician's labour: $715.00
How they raise the rest of the funding
1st Beaumaris Sea Scouts is currently fundraising by selling tickets to the Scouts & Schools Monster Raffle, at local shopping centres and door-to-door. In addition, there are a number of barbeques and bake sales scheduled to take place over the next few months. Proceeds from these activities will be sufficient to cover the remaining costs associated with lighting up the outdoor area at the scout hall.
