Help us raise funds for our young people

By joining our Bonus Ball Club, you'll be helping more young people in the local area experience larger Scouting events and trips abroad

Billesley Scouts Bonus Ball Club is a small society lottery, based on the bonus ball drawn from The National Lottery’s Saturday night Lotto draws. Money raised from the Bonus Ball Club will be paid into the bank account of 325th Birmingham, 1st Billesley Scout Group and used to help the charity further its aims to actively engage and support and empower young people in their personal development, helping them to make a positive contribution to society. Donations help us to keep the costs of delivering a quality, balanced programme as low as possible and remove any financial barriers to participation.

Entry fees are split equally, with 50% of proceeds donated to 325th Birmingham, 1st Billesley Scout Group, and 50% going to the prize fund. Funds donated through the Bonus Ball Club are not eligible for inclusion in the Group’s Gift Aid claims so, if you submit a tax return to HMRC, you should not include any entry fees in your charitable donation submission in your tax return.
