£332raised of £1,000 target by 23 supporters

    Weʼve raised £332 to Build a new Community Centre and Scout hut on the Charles St Recreation Ground in Louth, and see the site restored to it's former glory.

    Louth, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 2nd September 2018

    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.


    The Charles Street Recreation Ground is virtually on my door step in Louth. It comproses of 3 full size tennis courts, a large fishing pond, community gardens, and a bowling green with a pavilion which is now mothballed and falling into disrepair. Sadly, the site has become a magnet for anti-social behavoir, is undrused and is subject to frequent vandalism. However, Charles Street is still loved and cherished by the community, who are desperate to see it restored. A new scheme, the Louth Scouts Community Centre Project, has been establised which will see Louth 2nd and 4th Scouts take over the running of the site in partnership Home-Start Lincs and the the Louth Croquet Club. It will see a new Scout Headquarters for Louth built on the site of the derelict pavilion, and will be run with partners to provide a community hub for people of all ages and interests. The entire site will be run to benefit the physical and mental well-being of the Louth community.

    On July 1st I have committed to run the Lincoln 10k to raise money for the project. I am very new to running, but really happy to make the commitment to a local cause I feel very passionate about. I do hope you can support me with sponsorship, large or small. This project can't happen without the cash!

      A massive thank you to everyone for their sponsorship and moral support for the race yesterday. We beat the target of raising £1k for 10k for the Louth Scouts Community Centre Partnership and reached a target of £1,135. It's not too late for people to still make a donation here if they wish to. I am so grateful for my wonderful kids pictured below, who make the best cheerleading squad not just for race days but throughout my training. And to other family and friends - you support has been nothing short of inspirational. Many, many thanks xxx

      A little over 24 hours before the race starts and I am VERY nervous. It looks like it will be a hot, hot day so am going to forget any attempts of running a PB! I am delighted to say at this point that I have beaten my £1k for £10k target. So far the sponsorship stands at £1028 for the LSCCP. Thanks so much for your encouragement, support and cash! There is obviously still time for more sponsorship, so if you haven't sponsored me yet please do so. Thanks so much to everyone - that support will really see me through tomorrow x
