Funding Boost for 3rd Farnham Scout Group
The scout group is undertaking a complete repair and renovation of their 250 year old HQ, Daniel Hall, to bring it up to modern standards, making it a safer and more inspiring building whilst retaining its main historic features and value. This will improve a highly utilised but very rundown part of Farnham's conservation area. Renovation will retain the structure and key features of the existing building such as the oak beams and roof supports. The update of facilities will include: access for disabled people, effective and efficient heating, improved insulation, modern toilet facilities, protection against flooding and damp and up to date catering facilities. A variety of halls and meeting rooms will become available to suit local community needs.
SITA Trust funding will be used for major ground and first floor building alterations, structural support, partitions and roof insulation and repairs.
"We are so pleased to receive this contribution from SITA Trust. It represents the last major piece in our fundraising, which started over 12 years ago. This will now enable us to start building work and have the building ready in September for Scouting, Guiding and the community", Sue Hepburn, Group Scout Leader, 3rd Farnham Scout Group - www.3rdfarnham.org.uk.
Marek Gordon CEO and Chairman of SITA Trust added "We are delighted to have been able to support this project through the Landfill Communities Fund. This important source of funding has been available since 1997 and has provided such worthy projects with more than £1.2 billion."
SITA Trust provides funding through the Landfill Communities Fund. Funding is available for available for projects that enhance communities and enrich nature.
Farnham Buildings Preservation Trust
All the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts in the group help in the fundraising by finding out about an element of local history, and in the process of gaining this information will obtain a badge. The badge work they do will then get displayed in a presentation, judged by the Farnham Preservation Trust at the end of September. The Presentations will be separated into their scout sections and will be age related. These can be in any type of media, allowing every child the chance to take part in helping to raise funds for their HQ and gaining a greater understanding of past life and how community has shaped and still does shape life in Farnham.
As a bonus, the best in section will be awarded a personal prize.
As our own HQ building was involved in Farnham's industrial history, and the Farnham area was where Sir Baden Powell (the Founder of Scouting) spent a lot of time creating and discussing the idea of scouting, as well as visiting 3rd Farnham and other local groups on his way home to Bentley, where he lived at Pax Hill. Along with all the other famous people associated with and all the historical buildings in Farnham, this shouldn't be too difficult.
This also will embrace the Working in the Community and Helping Others elements of our scouting promise. The expectation is that everyone will come together to help and enable the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to fulfil this part of the grant criteria. Allowing them to gain well-deserved pride and recognition for the part they have played in the much needed renovation work of their HQ. Hopefully making it an enjoyable and memorable part of their childhood they take forward into their adult life.
Obviously parents will play a big role in giving ideas and encouraging their Beaver, Cub or Scout, but if anyone feels they have a particular skill, that will help the leaders put all the elements together, especially organising and helping to put on a fantastic presentation at the end of September, please contact Sue Hepburn to discuss.
Fantastic Fundraising Past and Present
Since September 2011 we have have done several fund raisers and raised a fantastic total of £2,400.00 towards our building fund. We will soon have a visual monitor of how our funds are going, at the moment we have almost raised £30,000.00 this will be very useful for matching funds when we apply for grants. The building committee are working hard to get grant applications under way, several look very promising, we are working to very tight deadlines for getting the applications in, but this also means we will also know sooner if we have been successful.
We have a minimum of three major fundraising events planned for this year and a major PR project that involves the Scouts working with a professional film makers, who have kindly volunteered their time to help us.
We have also had some fantastic offers to help with our fundraising, the first of these came from a friend of one of our Scout leaders, Vanessa and her partner are walking up to Everest base camp and then running the Marathon distance back down, they have given the group the chance to raise as much money as possible from this event which will happen at the end of May. We hope that everyone will look to their wider work and community networks to get sponsors to support their efforts. If anyone has any further ideas as to how we can utilise this event to raise money for and awareness of our refurbishment project, please contact me.
Simon one of our Scout Leaders is looking to create an annual Soapbox Derby in the Autumn which will bring ours and other groups together to have fun, whilst raising funds.
One of our Ex Leaders, now on the building committee, is marking a significant birthday by taking part in a 300 mile sponsored cycle ride, again by looking outwards and around everyone's own networks, we believe significant funds can be raised, all the funds raised will go to the building fund.
Details of an on line sponsor link will available soon, for these and other events we run, anyone who wishes to get involved in our fundraising, please don't hesitate to contact me. Things are moving forward at a pace now and every little bit of help will move us forward to our goal of a fantastic hall for everyone, young or old.
I have been working on this for a long time now, it is just getting to the really exciting bit, so come on join in and share in the fun and lets make 2012 the year 3rd Farnham achieve something special !!
