AJ2019 Raffle - Drawn Monday 3rd Dec 2018

The Australian Jamboree 2019 is being held in January 2019 at Murraylands in South Australia. A Jamboree takes place every three years, so it is the biggest event that a member will attend during their time as a Scout. Youth from all over Australia gather together in a mass campsite for approximately 10 days, where they participate in fun, physical, engaging and testing activities.

Naturally this requires a lot of organisation, equipment and supplies, so unfortunately it is also an expensive event. The NSW Contingent fees per member for AJ2019 are $1855 plus any other extra charges or activities. These costs are paid by the parents of the attending youth and so these parents undertake fundraising to try and offset some of these costs.


We are holding a fundraising raffle and will be selling tickets in and around our local area. We expect to be selling these near Woolworths Ermington and Woolworths West Ryde, probably for a few hours during weekends. If you want to find out exactly where and when we will be there, get in contact with us by either calling on 0410 410 553 or by email to We will ordinarily respond to emails within 2 days – if you do not get a reply, please try calling us.

Tickets are $2 each or $5 for three tickets (eg. 6 tickets for $10, 9 tickets for $15, etc). We have a range of prize pools with some generous donations made thanks to some of our sponsors, including:

Unless postponed as per advise on this page, prizes will be drawn at the 1st Ermington Scout Group Committee meeting at the 1st Ermington Scout Hall on Monday 3rd December 2018 at approximately 8PM (suggested arrival time for observers is 7:45PM).

1st Ermington Scouts - Fundraising

Our regular fundraiser is the Bunnings BBQ at Lidcombe/Rydalmere. This fundraising activity is vital to the success of our Group. It provides funds for major building works for our hall, maintenance costs, activities equipment, and major event funding. Families are able to access the major event fund (as long as they meet the minimum service requirements set down by the Group - see Major Event Fund Policy ) to help defray the costs of Joey Mob Holiday/Cuboree/Jamboree/Venture. All non-Leader families will be rostered on for a shift on the BBQ.
