The Scout and Guide Association is inviting voluntary donations from entrants and spectators towards this year's chosen charities which are ReLEAF Haddenham and Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital.

ReLEAF Haddenham was set up in 2020 with the aim of doubling the tree cover in the parish of Haddenham. Many trees have already been planted throughout the village.

Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating all species of British wildlife. All British wild animal casualties brought to the hospital are treated free of charge then released through a controlled programme, back to the wild, when they are fully fit.

Donations can be made in one of three ways:

1. Online here

2. In cash posted or delivered with your entry to 7 Dovecote, Haddenham HP17 8BP

3. By bank transfer to a designated Haddenham Scarecrow Festival Account held at Lloyds Bank, Sort Code: 30-98-56; Account No: 29225168; Account Name: F J Flaxton; Ref: Scarecrow24

There will be an opportunity for everyone to vote for their three favourites. Details about how to do this will be published nearer the time. The three most popular Scarecrows will receive Afternoon Tea for Two donated by Haddenham Garden Centre and Tickets to the Visitor Centre, donated by Tiggywinkles. All entrants will receive a Certificate of Participation.
