Ralph Fund

12th St John’s Scout Group is committed to providing opportunities for all young people to engage with Scouting. The Ralph Fund is a hardship fund established in the name of the original Scout Leader of the Group. It was set up to provide support for our members. The purpose of the Ralph Fund is to make Scouting available to all by providing fair access to funding to support members who are unable to participate due to financial hardship.
