Funding Requirements

Just £8k more needed to complete build!

To achieve our vision, we need to raise £705k to build a new HQ for the future and have just £8k to raise!

The new HQ facility will have one large main hall, a training room, boat maintenance room, equipment storage, toilets, changing rooms, kitchen and access to suit anybody with physical disabilities.

So far, we have raised over £695k from our own fundraising, local companies and trusts and in addition raised the £150k we need to fully fund Phase 1: Jetty Redevelopment.

We now need to find ...

  • £8k to complete our new HQ by September 2020
  • Donated good/gifts in kind/Donations to fit out our new build (Est cost £250k)

Can you, your company or trust make a contribution to help us ‘Build a Future’?

For a gift of £500 or more we will included you on our funders board to be displayed in our new hut

For Major Gifts of £25k we will discuss appropriate recognition with you

If we can find 2 large capital grants of £100k each we will have a fully fitted out new HQ by Sept 2020!

Remember Gift aid can increase the value of any personal donation by 25% and higher rate tax payers can get tax relief on donations.

For £1,000 donation it would only cost a basic rate tax-payer £800, with tax-relief a 40% tax payer net cost would only be £600.

For major donations please complete our gift aid declaration below or contact us on
