Team Les Squire RIP - Remembering an inspiring Scout Leader ’s story

Les Squire, founding leader of 7th Stoke Newington (50th North London) Scout Group passed away on 5th August. Over the last 67 years Les through his dedication and service has inspired generations of leaders and many thousands of Scouts.

He made a massive contribution to his group which was recognised when he received the highest award in Scouting - the Silver Wolf in 1999, and he was continuing to support the group until very recently.

We are determined to continue his work of preparing young people with skills for life, bringing our local community together and contributing to society. If you would like to make a donation in memory of Les which will benefit the 7th Stoke Newington Scout Group please enter your details on this page. Thank you for your support.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
