Lets get ready for Subs 2020! 

Units charge ‘subs’ to cover the cost of equipment and hire of the meeting place.

These can be paid weekly, monthly or each term. There is also an annual subscription which covers the day-to-day running of the charity. This is sometimes included in the subs. Subs vary from area to area – your local unit leader will be able to tell you how much the subs are and when they need to be paid.
