Weʼve raised £3,131 to provide volunteer accommodation at Walton Firs Activity Centre for young people.
- Cobham, Surrey, United Kingdom
- Funded on Saturday, 30th September 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
At Walton Firs we love helping young people experience the thrill and excitement of doing things outdoors. We have a range of activities such as caving, archery, climbing and many, many others to help youngsters develop self-confidence, self-esteem and team spirit - all essential skills in later life.
We couldn't do this without our brilliant volunteers - they are the oil in the engine which keeps our site affordable for everyone. But our volunteers need somewhere to sleep, and our current facilities are desperately inadequate.
We have been gifted a disused Telecoms maintenance building, and have planning permission to convert it - but this will cost £25,000. One of our fantastic supporters has offered to match anything we can raise before before 29th September 2017 up to a maximum of £12,500 - so we are pulling out all the stops to try and raise as close to that target as possible, to give our volunteers the facilities they so richly deserve.

It will be a vast improvement on a much loved 'Smokey Joes' !(You have to be over 60 to have experienced that crew accommodation.......)

We help young people get active, explore, have fun and overcome personal challenge. At Walton Firs we welcome all kinds of youth groups, some with desperately terrible back stories and give them an overwhelmingly positive experience - and memories which will last a lifetime.
