Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of the CLARKES MEAD TRUST and every donation will help to complete the construction of the HENFIELD SCOUT COMMUNITY CENTRE.
The old timber Scout Hut was rotting rapidly and eventually became unsafe for continued use and had to be demolished. The 1st Henfield Scout Group, home to "the oldest existing Scout Troop in the world" has had to temporarily relocate to Hillside District Campsite whilst the new building is constructed.
I and a small team of volunteers have been raising funds and planning the new building for over 25 years, to provide a Scout Community Centre that the whole Henfield Community can use alongside the Scout Group. Construction has finally started, but because the cost of materials rose by £90,000 during 2021 and 2022, the Appeal fund has a funding shortfall of around £70,000.
Thank you in advance for your contribution, it will help greatly to address the funding shortfall and provide a very valuable community building for the residents of Henfield and the surrounding villages.
Having lived in Henfield for 52 years, and been involved with the 1st Henfield Scout Group for 40 years, this cause means so much to me and I thank you for your kind support.
