We need your help! – weneedyourhelp-bootsale2016
We have the opportunity to help raise valuable funds for the unit, by parking cars and collecting gate money at the Castle Combe car boot sale.
This is a fantastic fundraising opportunity, but we need your help to make it work. Our unit funds go towards things like equipment for the weekly programme, keeping the costs on camps and events as low as possible, and purchasing new equipment for the unit.
Sunday 2nd October
Gates need to be manned from 7am at Castle Combe Circuit

Anyone who is free to lend a hand, if only for a couple of hours.
Feel free to just come along, and you will find leaders on both entry gates to the boot sale.
