Boyle Scouts Need Your Help

Boyle Scouts is a vibrant youth organisation catering for the youth of Boyle town and surrounding areas. Currently we have 168 Youth Members and 39 Adult Members across 7 Sections, 2 Beaver, 2 Cub, a Scout, Venture and a Rover section.

We have been looking the last few years at the possibility of building an extension to our Scout Den. We hope to link up our Den with the existing Garage and also to provide our own toilets so that the Den can be used at any time for meetings, training or even have visiting Groups stay overnight.

We hope to carry out these works over the summer months in order to have the Den available to us again in September.

We have some money set aside (€14,000) and hope to borrow the rest (€25,000) from Boyle Credit Union.

In order to help repay this loan, we are looking at setting up a Monthly Draw to run for the next few years until the loan is cleared.

The proposed Draw would run as follows:

Members sign up to a Standing Order of €10 per month or an Annual Payment of €120.

Proposed Monthly prizes would be: 1st Prize: €200, 2nd Prize: €100, 3rd Prize: €50, 4th Prize: €50

If you would like to join this fundraising Draw, or to give a one-off donation towards our Building Fund, however large or small, we would greatly appreciate all financial help.

Cheques, Standing Order Payments or Electronic Transfer Contributions can be made payable to the following Account:
Boyle Scouts Building Fund:             Account Number:       42367249
Bank of Ireland, Boyle                     Sort Code:                  90-53-28

                                                      IBAN Number:            IE07 BOFI 9053 2842 3672 49

So far we have had an excellent response from Parents and Boyle Businesses, and would like to thank them all for the support they are showing us.
