Girlguiding Epsom has a Campsite called Little Acres near Horton Country Park. It gives us an opportunity to camp and experience the outdoors in a safe and peaceful area. The campsite has electricity, running water and a toilet block.


We wanted to provide some indoor facilities, so plans were drawn up for a building. After many years of hard work we were granted planning permission in 2009 to build a ‘Lodge’ on Little Acres.  

The Lodge will have wood panelling on the exterior, a porch and a walkway around it. There is to be a hall, kitchen, toilets and shower, First Aid room and storage rooms. The build is estimated to cost £110,000.

 

To raise this money we are applying for grants, but are also running our own fundraising events. Can you assist in anyway with the planning and running of these events?  Can you help in obtaining grants?  Do you have any suggestions of tried and tested ideas to help us raise the funds?  Do you know anyone who runs corporate events or gives company sponsorship?  Are you or do you know someone  who is a member of Freemasons, Roundtable, Rotary or similar organisation, Captain of the Golf Club, please consider our Lodge fund as your charity and help the future generation of girls enjoy camping and the outdoors.
