In order to realise the dream of rebuilding Birk Crag Centre lots of people have already helped to raise funds and many people continue fundraising – thank you to everyone.
We have raised an amazing amount for the rebuilding and this is largely due to the fantastic efforts of members of the County, together with generous donations from individuals, Trusts, Funds and Foundations, legacies from members and supporters, past and present, plus many others. We are very grateful to all our supporters, both financial and in kind and thank them most sincerely.
This means that we have been able to achieve an almost watertight building at June 2020. Improvements have already been made to the site entrance and services, work is underway on the Store and some external landscaping. We are continuing to raise funds to complete fitting out the Ground floor and First floor, bedrooms and basement together with completing external landscaping.
There are many ways in which we have and continue to raise the remaining funds which can be summarised as:
County run fundraising events such as concerts, ceilidh, coffee days, lunches, afternoon teas, evening events, Lockdown Bingo, talks and much more!
- Community groups and local businesses
- Trust and Fund applications
- Friends of Birk Crag
- Individual members fundraising events
- County-wide Raffle
- Merchandise sales
- Challenge badges
- Virtual events during Lockdown 2020
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.
