Mother's Day Flower Sales - 2018

posted 30 Mar 2018, 04:35 by Epping Scout Group   [ updated 30 Mar 2018, 06:52 ]
On Sunday 13th May we will be selling flowers for Mother's Day.  We will be setting up at the North Epping shops on the corner of Malton Road and Roma St, Epping Oval on Norfolk Rd and Epping Railway Station opposite the Bendigo Bank. We are seeking volunteers to man the 3 stalls from about 7am until 11am or until the flowers run out.  We need a few parents on each shift and also quite a few kids to help with selling.  Joeys are especially welcome as they have the perfect sales technique.

Any flowers that are left over at the end of the morning are taken to Ryde Hospital where the youth members present them to the mums.

Please consider donating some time on Sunday morning, an hour or 2 would be great and the children really love being little merchants.  Uniform is required for invested members.  New members who have not yet been invested are also welcome to participate.

This is one of the Group's biggest fundraisers of the year and the money we raise goes towards purchasing the equipment necessary to conduct the exciting activities such as canoeing, hiking, camping, boating etc, etc.

Current members will recieve an email containing a link to the roster which will show the available time slots for each of the three selling venues.  Please indicate your preferred site and time slots and include the names of who will be attending.  It might be necessary to move people around on the day based on how busy each site is.


An E1 Activity Notification Form is attached, however, all current members will receive an invitation via CareMonkey.  Please click on the "Respond Now" button and acknowledge by either accepting or declining.  For all others attending, please complete page 1 of the E1, for each person, and bring this with you on the day and give it to the coordinator at your site.  Current members should not use this form.

Your help is essential.  Please reply as soon as possible as some of the time slots fill up very quickly.
