Why we're raising money
Thank you and jazakhallah khair to everyone who has donated so far. We are excited to have started the project to refurbish our community building. We are pleased that the fire doors have been completed and work has started in the bathrooms and training room.
We have extended our target for the campaign. As work has started, there have been requirement for additional works which has meant further monies are needed. This includes ;
- clearing and refurbishing additional rooms
- fixing a broken wall
- adding of shower fixtures & disabled toilet
By doing the work, the community building is more fit for purpose and of more benefit to the community.Refurbishing the extra rooms that have now been cleared gives us extra rooms to run Covid compliant sessions.
Any excess funds raised will be used to form a fund to assist with running costs for the first year and other general maintenance fund to ensure that building can be sustained by the group during the year to ensure it remains accessible for the community in South West London. We remind everyone this is a community building and any funds generated in the future will always be used to benefit the building and continue to improve it.
9th Southside Scout Group have become responsible for the scout building in Church Lane, South West London. The property is in a state of disrepair and desperately in need of maintenance. We need your help!!
See link to video showing state of the property.
Our vision is to upgrade the building to make it safe, improve the external appearance and internal feel and overall create a warm, welcoming and clean place for the children to learn and thrive and for our volunteers to be comfortable.
Our plan is to do the following ;
- refurbish the toilets /
- painting and decorating external signs and entire internal building (painting and decorating)
- gutting of bathrooms/ bathroom refit
- fix the flooring throughout the building
- clear out / plaster / painting and decorating further 2 rooms
We have secured some funding from the Council for this work but we are falling short and request monetary support.
Hadith of the Prophet ﷺ, narrated by Muslim
“When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.”
Insha’Allah (God Willing) we hope that Tooting Scout Hut not only provides a safe environment for Scouts for years to come, but also instils beneficial knowledge through the youth for entire communities that can be passed on to future generations.
We want to involve the whole community in this project and would actively encourage families /children with support of their parents to set up a mini challenge.
