Please help secure funding for Avondyke

28th September 2011

As part of its support for Scouting, Clyde Region is responsible for running Avondyke Scout Training Centre which is situated just outside Stonehouse in South Lanarkshire.

The building at Avondyke has been used by many Scout Groups for more than 30 years where we can introduce our youth members to camping and outdoor activities.

Avondyke needs upgrading and we have applied for a grant from the RBS Community Force Grants Scheme which if successful, will secure 6,000 to make the building wind and water tight and help secure its future as an accessible campsite in a rural community.

We see the long term future of Avondyke as being key in enabling local Scout Groups across Clyde Region to get outdoors, enjoy safe, adventurous activities & give young people the chance to go camping.

To secure this funding, we need your help.

Please spare a few minutes of your time, go to http://communityforce.rbs.co.uk/project/1028 and vote for our project. The more votes we get , the greater our chance is of securing this money.

If you have a Facebook or Twitter account, please post a message on there to encourage as many of your friends and family as possible to vote for us. Please feel free to copy and paste the message from our Facebook page at http://clyd.de/fb

Thanks, in anticipation for your help.

Please click here to print this article out as a letter that you can distribute to your young people, their Parent's and friends.
