New stretch target

The more we raise, the greater the chance of not just keeping the business going, but we'll also be able to keep more of our amazing team, working over the Winter 2020/2021.  This means therefore more chance to support our NHS and Emergency Service Heroes too! 


Hi everyone,

New Forest Activities needs your help and wants to help others too!

In light of the current situation regarding COVID-19/Coronavirus, New Forest Activities has been closed since Sunday 22nd of March, until further notice. 

Although some of our activities could be run, keeping to social distancing measures, it's not appropriate to do so at this current time. As always, the safety and health of staff, customers, and all others is of the utmost importance.

Like so many other small, independent businesses, we now face an unpredictable and potentially very grave future and we need your help.

Put simply; without support and action during these times, New Forest Activities may struggle to survive, with its staff team placed in a vulnerable financial position.

Due to the unknown duration of this lockdown, we are unable to even fully understand the level of impact this will have on our seasonal business. 80% of our revenue comes during March - September and without reliable cash flow, even with government support, we're unlikely to remain open beyond the Summer months. Of course, we'd likely arise phoenix-like in Spring 2021, however, our amazing team would be out of work, whilst we sat dormant. You can help us and ensure we can come good on our pledge to help others too!

Now here's how it works. Crowdfunding is available for a business like ours, through the 'Pay It Forward' campaign. This means we can raise funds now, which pre-pays for us to deliver our excellent, award-winning activities to you in the future. If this campaign is successful, additional funds are also opened up to us via the Solent LEP.

This is offered in 3 different forms, with each also ensuring that the hardworking NHS and Emergency Service Personnel are all winners too:

Families & Small Groups | Make The Most Of The Summer    


For you: Pledge a £10, £25 or £50 deposit towards a fun activity day or session for you and your loved ones. You're going to need some fresh air and relaxation once this is all over. Why not put some money down and guarantee a session when we open again. We're expecting to be really busy once we're able to open our sites again, however, we'll keep your money on hold till you get to use it.

We will: Again not only will we give you an amazing 5-star experience, but your booking will also help us to cover the cost of running half price activities for the family of an NHS or emergency service worker. We really want to help others, yet we need to save our business to enable this first!

Business Teams | Get That Feeling Of Being Back Together Again


For you: Pledge a £500 deposit towards an awesome team building event of your choice. This will be specifically built for you, confirmed for a date when your team needs to feel whole again. Video connections are ok, but nothing beats the together feeling of shared outdoor experiences!

We will: For each of these deposits taken, we will give you an amazing day to remember. You will also be partly subsidizing a similar event for an NHS team. As we'll be offering them and other emergency service teams, half price team building during 2020 & 2021.
