Our Supporters

 

On this page we share those organisations, businesses and people in the local area who have supported our aim to offer year round outdoor adventures for those in the Group. We also share on this page the proceeds made at our fund raising events for others and for our own Group funds. 

 

Please bear in mind that as we have no home of our own the bulk of our income goes on paying for rent, storage and fixed overheads like kit insurance so we are totally reliant on grants and donations to buy new kit or subsidise the cost of running the six or more camps we run each year.

 

Our equipment purchase policy is always to buy items that will last a number of years to benefit the most young people in the group. We're proud of the fact that 100% of the financial support we've received for kit still exists as equipment listed in our group inventory of long term assets. 

 

You can see on our fund raising targets page the key items we are fund raising for at the moment.
