Our old factory building is becoming expensive to repair, we cannot put out Subs up as a lot of families would not be able to afford the extra money. So we have to tray and raise funds.

Gravesend Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Our hall is about 70 years old and was donated from a factory that closed down. It has done us well, but is in desperate need of replacing, or a major over hall. We do try and raise funds ourselves but in this day and age that is not easy. We need the Electrics, heating and plumbing replaced and a new Kitchen fitted. We are a local Scout Group and have around 60 children that attend Scouting every week. Please consider our application as we are nearing the stage were the utilities will be condemned. Thank you for considering our request

What we'll deliver:

  • Have a lovely new safe building for our young people to enjoy
  • storage for our very expensive to replace camping equipment
  • Install a new Kitchen

Why it's a great idea:

If we had a new building it would be fantastic for the young people.This would make our work with children aged 6 years to 18 years much easier and safer. if we had a new kitchen we would be able to help children learn to cook on proper stoves, we do teach them to cook but on camping stoves. Its surprising what we would be able to do with the children if we were able to get all our requests. The Leaders all give there time for free, we do not get paid, although a lot of people think we do. We do it because we want to help young people to grow up and be resourceful, and able to look after themselves and others.

Steps to get it done:

  • A safe place for our young people enjoy and to learn

We hope that if we could get a new hall, that we would be able to open it up to the community for social gatherings, like afternoon tea for the Pensioners in our area. as our age concern place has had to reduce the hours they are open. There could be a lot of other things that we could do for the community. Social gatherings, and most importantly we could take more children into Scouting, We have a waiting list for all three sections, but the hall is not big enough to increase the size of each meeting. It would be lovely to have a new bigger Hall, but if that is not possible then a refurbished hall would help us a lot. Thank you.
