There are plenty of ways to help us that don’t involve giving money.
While we do fundraise all year round to keep the unit going, our running costs are relatively small because a closed unit like ours doesn’t have to pay subscriptions (our young members only visit a few times so an exception is made) and we don’t have to rent our venue.
**NOTICE FOR GROUPS DOING THE CENTRAL YORKSHIRE YOUTH COMMISSIONERS CHALLENGE THIS YEAR** PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CONTACT US TO DISCUSS ANY RESOURCES YOU’D LIKE TO BUY FOR US. WE CANNOT ACCEPT DONATIONS OF CERTAIN ITEMS.
If you’d like to give us a little money towards our funds then you can do it online on our GoFundMe page.
What we do need is to be able to buy, or at least acquire, are resources so that we can do all the activities we want to. On this page we will regularly update the types of resources we need so that you can consider giving us a resource donation.
Our volunteer collection driver, Will, can collect items from most locations in Leeds and Bradford or (if the items are small) we can provide a postal address for you to send items to.
Please CONTACT US to arrange how to get your items to us.
Please note that we cannot store items at Clarendon Wing or LGI, so please do not drop items off there.
RESOURCES WE NEED RIGHT NOW
Due to excessive kindness from our local communities we have had to suspend donations of all craft materials until further notice. Please DO NOT purchase craft materials for us without contacting us to check we can accept them first.

- Scouting or Guiding printed resources – all types accepted
- Scouting or Guiding uniforms from any group types (including leader uniforms) – all types and sizes accepted in good condition
