Cub & Scouts
When we first started the Rock Shop in 2004 we aimed it at a primary school market and specifically towards PTA organisations. To that end we have aligned ourselves to the NCPTA and regularly exhibit at their regulat workshops across the country.
However, since then we have provided our rock shop as a fundraising activity to a number of other charities and organisations unconnected to schools.
Cubs and Scout troops are rugularly raising funds for charities and other causes and we are sure that our Rock Shop would make an excellent addition to existing initiatives.
Here is what one scout group had to say after their first Rock Shop.
"Our first Rock Shop was a huge success, so much so that we have already booked for Spring 08. Showing the fossils to the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts beforehand was a brilliant idea, not only did it get them all wound up ready to buy it also provided an evenings ' programme' talking about the fossils, where they had come from and what type of animals some of them had been. A really great fundraiser".
