Why we're raising money

UPDATE

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. 

STORY

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.

Aamina's 99 names of Allah challenge

Assalam Walaikum,My name is Aamina and I am a scout. I am trying to raise funds for the refurbishment of the J4Y 9th Southside scout hut in Tooting and I have decided to take up a personal challenge in order to do so. Here is a link for a video of how the scout hut currently looks like:⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JElHq3jDzPwI will be learning the 99 names of Allah (also called Asma ul Husna) as I thought this would be a good thing to learn especially as the challenge is over Ramadan. Each of Allah's 99 names has a significance in Islam and explains the traits of Allah (swt).

Refurbishing Scouts Huts

Dear Family and Friends, My sister Aminah and I (Naba) are raising  money to support our Scouts group. J4Y (Just for Youth) have recently acquired ownership of the Scouts hut but sadly, the hut is falling apart. Please support us in raising money to refurbish our hut so J4Y scouting can continue to  develop confidence in young children who can later on become capable leaders and benefit the community for years to come. J4Y has developed young muslim scouts for over 10 years. They are one the biggest scout groups in the country. To make this challenge more interesting and to achieve our personal challenge badge, my sister and I will learn the 99 names of Allah. Insha'Allah  Please help us reach our target. Naba and Aminah  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Charity does not decrease wealth.” Narrated by Muslim (2588)May Allah bless you, increase your Rizq and make this a Sadaqa Jariyah for your families امينThe current state of Church Lane Scouts Hut https://youtu.be/JElHq3jDzPw

Nusaybah & Faatimah's Day of Silence

Nusaybah, Faatimah and Ayub’s Day of SilenceSalam, my name is Nusaybah Ansari. And my name is Faatimah Ansari.I’m Ayub and I’ve joined too.We love to talk. We talk so much that everyone wishes we would just be quiet for even five minutes. Even though our dad says he cannot get any peace and quiet with our constant yapping, our mum says that we bring life and joy with us wherever we go. And anyways, our stories are the most interesting so we have to tell everyone about them.So our dad challenged us to remain silent for an entire day from the moment we woke up until the moment we went to sleep. This sounds very difficult for us but we decided to do this to raise money for the refurbishment of our scout hut which will be a hub for the community for years and years to come. The current state of the hut is very poor and in desperate need of repair.We are willing to sacrifice our amazing tales for one day this month to raise money for the hut. On the 1st of May this year, we will be doing a sponsored silence where we will not speak, laugh, cry or scream for the entire day until iftaar time ... and then we will tell our dad all about it. This is a lot harder then it may seems.Please donate generously to create a better future for the whole community.
