    Weʼve raised £770 to Repaint the exterior of Assynt Leisure Centre in Lochinver

    Lochinver, Scotland, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 31st December 2018

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Assynt Leisure is a community run, registered charity, providing Sport, Youth and Learning opportunities for the community of Assynt and surrounding area.

    Assynt Leisure offers something for everyone in our community and is a lasting testament to the resourcefulness and industry of the people of Assynt.

    This well used facility would not exist were it not for a large and determined group of volunteers whose unstinting efforts and determination, often in the face of formidable financial, bureaucratic and technical obstacles, succeeded in bringing this community asset from conception to completion in 2005. As a community we owe them all a debt of gratitude for their work which continues to this day.

    With reducing support from the local authority, and limited income, Assynt Leisure is struggling to meet ongoing running costs, and maintenance costs in particular. The exterior of building is in great need of a coat of paint, and we are now looking to raise funds to do this. We will enlist the help of volunteers to help with the painting, but we need to buy the paint and appoint a local contractor to co-ordinate the work. Every penny will help!! Please help if you can.

      We have raised £720 from JustGiving, and a further £640 from direct donations, making a total of £1,360! Many thanks to all who have contributed. We are more than half way towards our total and will hopefully be in a position to go ahead in the spring/summer. All we need is some dry weather!

      Tough time to raise money when there are so many demands on our cash at this time of year. Keep up the good work.

    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.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
