Scout HQ Heating Costs
We did it
On 26th March 2023 we successfully raised £10,050 ( + est. £1002.50 Gift Aid ) with 37 supporters in 28 days

With the recent increase in energy costs our bills are set to triple. We need your help to ensure we can keep the lights and heating on.

Who are we?

We are a team of volunteers who provide the young people of Cringleford with the opportunity to take part in adventurous activities and learn skills for life.

Community impact

Through Scouting our young people get to try a wide range of outdoor activities. They make new friends, learn new skills and build their confidence.

Why are we crowdfunding?

We are very lucky to have a well insulated building with a ground source heat pump but the cost of running and maintaining this have increased significantly. The heat pump is now over 15 years old and isn't as reliable as it previously was. We don't want membership fees to be a barrier to young people being able to take part in Scouting so we do our best to avoid increasing costs for parents. With the current cost of living crisis it is particularly important the we keep our fees low.

How we’ll spend the money raised

We would spend any money raised on our ever increasing energy bills and repairs to the heating system.
