My name is Julie Barry and I am mum to 2 adult boys 20 and 23yrs.
I have been involved in Scouting for over 14years and at Fressingfield for 12yrs!
We have been trying so hard to raise money to build our own Scout Hut HQ for the last 6 years, and with pledges and fundraising have bought our own land and play equipment and built a campfire and wildlife area along with so much more.
But, these projects take so long and we are running out of time now, with pledges expiring without building the project by end of October!
We are all trying so hard to raise money, but in Covid 10 Pandemic, it has proved to knock us back and prevent us raising the funds we so desperately need to be able to run from our own scout hut through the winter.
We cannot go back to our old Scout Hut because the lease for the building is near its end and the building is not being repaired or updated so is dangerous for us to return to now.
As it was, we had no running water and only one outside toilet in a car park which is dreadful in the winter and dark, cold wet nights.
We need so much help and I hope you can help me to raise the £320 pounds I need to reach my target of £500. I challenged myself to cycle through September to cover 200miles, and am so close now with only 17miles to go!
I'm going to continue, it has been life changing for me.
