Name: StephanieLambourn
Profession: Travel Agent Group treasurer
Bio: In addition to being a travel agent, Stephanie is the treasurer for the 1st Hungerford Scout Group, and is always looking for different ways to raise money for everyone in the Scout Group to have a great time, whilst keeping costs down for parents.
My Give as you Live Experience:
Last year we managed to raise money via Give As You Live for our new toilets in the scout hut. They are lovely and so much better than the old ones.

This year we are focussing on the outside of the hut. We have to replace our outside storage units as they are beginning to fall apart, but as the main shed is made from asbestos sheets it is going to be an expensive job to get that removed safely. Then we need to build new storage sheds.

We recently purchased a multi function ladder that will replace the one we have been “borrowing” from a very patient relative. We brought the ladder online via Maplin.co.uk and it is being delivered this week.

As the Group Treasurer I have great pleasure at each executive meeting being able to tell the committee how much we have earned each month by buying on line. The total is steadily growing and it is all so easy to do. Our shoppers actively look for those suppliers that support Give as you Live, and therefore us each time they shop online.
