Finnbar’s Force Family Day

Eaton Vale is hosting the second family adventure day to raise money for Finnbar’s Force. There’s some great opportunities for Explorers, Young Leaders and Adults to get involved.

The event is on Sunday 8 September from 10am – 4pm

In 2017 we hosted the event on Finnbar’s 7th birthday.  It raised more than £10,000 in just one day.  We are hoping that we will be able to raise a substantial amount of money again this year.

It is a lot of fun and hard work.  To run the activities, stalls and support takes a large number of volunteers, who would be preparing food, manning the stalls, selling tickets and so on.

Adult Volunteers

We’d be really interested to hear from any Scout volunteers who could support our instructors on activities.  Anything you could do to help would be much appreciated.

If you would be prepared to help on Saturday 7 (set up) or Sunday 8, please contact Marie-Clare.  Please state that you are from Scouting, leave a contact telephone number and how much time you can spare.

If you volunteer on the day of the event, you will be fed and watered throughout the day.

Explorer Scouts and Young Leaders

We’re offering Explorer Scouts the chance to come, help and have some fun too. We’re putting on a special camp if they would like to stay over Saturday night.

In return for the hard efforts the following will be provided:

  • Free camping on Saturday night in a field away from the fun day. (Will need to bring tents)
  • Dinner on Saturday night.
  • Breakfast and BBQ lunch on Sunday
  • Each young person will be provided with a certificate of support from Finnbar’s Force for use in Scouting awards or achievement files.

Explorer Scouts, Parents and Explorer Scout Leaders can find out more informaiton here:
