Fertiliser Fundraiser

Halswell Scout Group wishes to thank the Courtenay A&P Association for their support in allowing us the use of their entry software with the aim of improving our Annual Fundraising Fertiliser Drive. Located at the Kirwee Show Grounds, the Courtenay Show is the closest rural show to Christchurch, just 20 minutes drive from the city, on State Highway 73. As the South Island’s premier show town, Kirwee also hosts the Kirwee Players, and the South Island Field Days. Check them out!

As part of our annual Fund Raising activities in support of our youth going to camps, training courses, and other events, such as the triennial national Scout Jamboree, we host a fertiliser drive each year in August covering most of the South-West corner of Christchurch, and this year will be no exception

This is our single biggest fundraising activity of the year.

In return for the youth members of our scout group participating in the fertiliser drive, we apportion them a percentage of the profits towards their scouting activities

The area we cover is shown on the map below, bounded by the red outline. It covers the suburbs from Prebbleton to Hornby to Wigram to Hillmorton to Spreydon to Barrington to Cracroft to Westmorland to Halswell.

We offer free delivery to those suburbs within the outlined target area.
