What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Phoenix Hall was built over 50 years ago. Whilst well suited at the time as a Scout headquarters, over the decades we’ve seen Scouting evolve and as group 3rd Macc has grown considerably. With the passing of time and despite taking great care of this our home, the hut is tired and in desperate need of modernisation.

To ensure our group continues to serve the community sustainably, providing valuable life skills and opportunities for young people, there is an urgent and growing need to extend and renovate our head quarters.

With modern and accessible facilities, having more flexible spaces, designed to inspire and help our young people flourish, as a group we will have greater potential to deliver positive impacts than ever before.

We have a dynamic and engaged passionate leadership team but we cannot continue to operate on their good will and time alone.

And that’s where you come in. Your help in achieving our fundraising goal will enable our leadership team keep their primary focus on delivering inspiring programmes which help our young people gain confidence, grow as individuals and most important of all have fun!

Regardless of our dilapidated headquarters we still deliver a rich and diverse programme for young people of all ages. You can get a flavour of this from our recent 100 year anniversary camp. Just imagine what greater positive impact we could achieve with improved town centre facilities. Please support our campaign and help us serve many more young people for generations to come. Thank you!
