Support Gilwell's centenary with your own Gilwell 100 event

Gilwell 100 is a fantastic opportunity for you as a local group to educate the public about the history of Gilwell Park, share key Scouting updates and use the opportunity to fundraise. 

If you’re holding your own event this year and are looking for ideas or need support with anything please let us know.

We’re hoping many local groups around the UK and the world will be collectively collaborating and gearing up to celebrate Gilwell 100 this year.

Groups have told us about their educational efforts on how they're sharing the historical relevance with their young people. Many are attending events at Gilwell to celebrate with us and using the opportunity to engage and excite their young people.

How can fundraising at the Scouts support you?

Ideas on events to hold

  • Quiz nights are always a key event to make good money. Everyone loves to share what they know so why not consider holding a Gilwell Park and heritage focused quiz?
  • A Gala Dinner is a great way to raise money, have a fantastic event and do something special. You might need a couple of friends to help organise this type of event. Make sure you utilise your contacts well and make sure you get the right people along.
  • Afternoon teas are a simple but delightfully eloquent way to hold and event and very easy to organise. If you live local to Gilwell Park then do let us know and we’d be happy to host you in our Whitehouse for a fundraiser. Contact us for more details.
