During lockdown we launched our Scouting at Home badge to help with our fundraising. You can buy the badge here: https://scout.radio/shop/product/scouting-at-home-2020/ Scout Radio receives no external funding, and has to cover our running costs (Insurances, licenses, systems and equipment) by attending events.
