£9,000 to Develop Adventure Hub

We’re the 32nd Scout Group based in Greenock. We’ve outgrown our old rundown Scout hall and just have taken ownership of a huge and absolutely stunning former Council property. But we need to raise an initial £9,000 to start turning it into an adventure hub for the Scouts and local community.

What's the Plan?

We’re a really active Scout group, with around 150 young people and 24 adult volunteer leaders. With the new building, we plan to create a community hall downstairs and a state of the art Scout hall upstairs. It’ll even have a 28 foot high climbing wall, from basement to roof space! Our plan is for the open space to the rear to have an archery range, cooking pit fires, raised garden beds, a rope trail, bouldering wall for the Beaver Scouts and an area for slinging hammocks for sleeping under the stars. We need to raise funds to make this bit happen.

The area where the premises is located has very little youth or community facilities, so the new Scout hub will breathe life into an otherwise quiet and slightly tired area of town.

What Will We Use the Funds For?

We’ve already started to meet in the new premises (Bank street, Greenock) in small groups. We’ll use some of the money raised to make changes to the building to make it suitable for  larger groups and we’ll also transform the land at the rear into an outdoor learning space. This means that other Scout troops and community groups can use the building and the adventurous activity apparatus and be part of our big adventure.

We have LOTS of ideas and plans, but to start with, we need your help to raise an initial £9000, which will create the entire outdoor space and also assist with some of our capital building works. We have a real chance to make a positive difference and create a modern, fit for purpose centre for generations to come.
