Foxie's Future - Help buy Foxlease!
We did it
On 9th November 2023 we successfully raised £45,754 ( + est. £8635.00 Gift Aid ) with 329 supporters in 69 days

To raise money to support the purchase of Foxlease - an activity centre in the Heart of the New Forest.

Project by Foxie's Future

Foxie's Future is a charity (registered CIO) which has been set up in response to the decision confirmed by Girlguiding on 14 August 2023 that they will be closing and selling their Activity Centres, including Foxlease in the New Forest.  It is our intention to fundraise to purchase the site from Girlguiding when it comes to market later this year.  Our aim, if successful in our purchase, is to restore and preserve the historic buildings, site and adventurous activity provisions so that they remain available to future generations of young people and the community that currently uses the site, both local, national and international.  We believe that Foxlease is a place like no other with a unique history and a myriad of opportunities.  Your donation will help us to save this wonderful place. 

We have an immediate need to raise capital quickly to support the purchase price, anticipated to be in the region of £3 million; however, once the site is obtained there will be regular running costs to support, along with repairs and restoration work.
