In order to realise our dream of a new Birk Crag Centre we must first ensure the funds are in place.
The project comes with an estimated price of £1.2m but the good news is we have already raised over £798,500. In addition, we have pledges of over £80,000.
This is largely due to the fantastic efforts of members of the County, together with generous donations and legacies from members and supporters, past and present. We are very grateful to all our supporters, both financial and in kind and thank them most sincerely.
This means that we now have approximately 66% of our ambitious building target which will allow us to build Phases 1 – 4 of the brand new centre, meaning we can improve the site entrance and services, build the shell with roof, windows and doors and fit out the ground floor. We are continuing to raise funds for fitting out the first floor, bedrooms and basement together with external ground works.
There are many ways in which we plan to raise the remaining funds which can be summarised as:
- County run fundraising events such as concerts, family activity day, coffee days, lunches, afternoon teas, market stall, evening events and talks and much more!
- Community groups and local businesses
- Trust and Fund applications
- Friends of Birk Crag
- Individual members fundraising events
- Merchandise sales
- Challenge badges
We will keep this page updated with all the different ways you can support us to raise these funds and we will always be grateful for any funds you may have raised or feel able to give to our project.
