It’s an oldie but a goodie, and our local Scouts will use the funds raised by doing your odd jobs to fund camps, equipment and activities for their local members.

There are a host of jobs that the Scouts are happy to undertake for your donation.

From lawn mowing, car washing and cleaning windows to ironing, weeding and woodchopping the Scouts are ready willing and able.

However there are some more modern takes on the Bob a Job with the Scouts able to undertake technology tutoring for locals.

Raymond Terrace Scouts are happy to assist members of the public to organise Scouts to undertake jobs.

Scout Leader John Doyle of Raymond Terrace Scouts told News Of The Area, “All the money raised will stay local for our local Scouts.”

Scouts welcome all children and offer a host of outdoor activities.

Bob a Job was named after an old shilling or ‘Bob’, with inflation the Scouts no longer earn a Bob for the jobs that they do but the traditional name for the fundraiser has stood the test of time.

The donation to the Scouts usually reflects the time and effort that the job has taken.

“I hope that we can get some support for the children with this, but it is equally important it lets the community know that Scouts is alive and well in Raymond Terrace,” he said.

You can book in the Raymond Terrace Scouts for a job at your home or workplace by calling John on 0412 539 200.

For those outside Raymond Terrace there are scout groups throughout Port Stephens and if people have some jobs for the children to do they can contact our Region Office on 1300 856 464 to get their local Scout Group contact phone number.
