Bonfire Sale Generates Over 3.5k For Local Scout Group


Each year the 72nd ST Andrew's Scouts, Cubs and Beavers put on a charity firework display that bolsters their funding for an entire year. It's famous Sheffield wide, everyone knows about the Chelsea Park display.

This year was no exception, thousands of people turned up to see the bonfire, watch the fireworks display, grab a toffee apple or two and give a bit to help fund the scouts. At Planet X we thought we'd take it one step further to help them fundraise. So we set up a flash sale that started when the bonfire was lit and finished when it went out. 15% off almost anything was on offer and we promised to donate 50% of the profits to the Scouts.

Well, you dug in deep and ordered quite a bit of stuff. So much in fact that we were still shipping it out on Tuesday morning. We've totalled up the sales, calculated the margin and last week we wrote the 72nd St Andrew's Scouts a cheque for £3,650.

Thanks for all your help, it wouldn't have been possible without you. Happy cycling.
