Merry Christmas from all of us (video post)

We hope that you have a very merry Christmas and here’s a little video from all the scouts and explorers from our 2012 Christmas Card:

We would not be aboe to run without the support of many people and we hope you’ll keep being as wonderful in 2013.

Beavers Christmas Sleepover


Fundraise as you shop – please do this

We’ll hear this week how much we raised on the litter picking, we’ll let you know as soon as we do.

In the meantine:

If every family does this and spends £250 on the internet between now and Christmas (including tesco, sainsbury’s, waitrose and asda), we would earn about £300 in a month ish. Just by sitting at a computer.

No effort fundraising:

We get a donation from hundreds of internet shops (all the big ones and many small ones) and it is so easy… you don’t need to register, fill in extra forms etc…

Simplest way

Go to our website: 5bs.org and click of the link at the bottom of the page

or look over there on the right… a big advert, just click click click >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

then just search the shop that you are buying from. It then sorts out all the payments etc…  why not bookmark our page for next time? Just use it as a portal to shop through.

Never miss an opportunity

Download and install the toolbar and it will make sure that you never miss a chance to donate to the 5th and it offers you bargains and deals from the shops you visit.

Please take the time to do this. It’s free money for us. Sometimes the donations are quite significant – i bought a bike rack in June from Evans for £140 and in return, we earned over £5 . Lots of £30 purchases add up to lots of £1 donations.  It costs nothing to you.


with the toolbar, i have the opportunity when i visit a page to click ‘yes’ to donate to the 5th. When i do that, it pings me first to a page of voucher codes etc that could save me money. It’s been rather useful on occasion.

Please give this a try. As we say, it’s free money.

We paraded at Beckenham War Memorial

The Fifth had a wonderful turnout from all sections, in smart uniforms (for the most part) and brilliant behaviour (from everybody). Following remembrance themed activities for some of the sections, we invited them all to parade at Beckenham War Memorial on Sunday Morning. The hight street was closed off and with a parade that was 50% 5th Beckenham South, we walked to a memorial that is inscribed with the names of over 1,200 Beckenham residents who lost their lives fighting for their country. (more info on Beckenham War Memorial)

Chris and Badger lead the group down the High Street while Nicky carries the flag.

Their behaviour was perfect and the weather was glorious for a very special day.

Grace, Lizzie, Rhylie and Luke chat to Col. Bob Stewart MP.

They might be a scruffy lot but they did their duty and were a credit to us.

Here is a little video of the event:
