Our fundraising committee are looking to raise in the region of £2m to fund the redevelopment, which will include the new purpose-built building, improved and enlarged grounds and access road, fittings, furniture and equipment. We will also be increasing the activity kit and boats to allow us to enlarge our general operation and some funding to help us over the first couple of years of operation when our income may not have caught up with our expenditure.
The Covid-19 pandemic meant we had to postpone the fundraising and building plans, however, the Trustees have agreed to re-start with a view to completing by Easter 2024.
We are looking at a wide range of funding options, with the majority coming from grants from charitable trusts and foundations. We are also looking at some smaller scale fundraising that everyone can help with which are set out below. Could you organise a fundraising event at school or work for us – dress down Friday, coffee morning, collection bucket etc? Just call Phil on 07837 585798 to discuss.
