In September 2014 the Berkswell ( 53rd Coventry) Scout Group launched a campaign to raise funds for the development of a new Scout House to replace the current run-down 1960s Scout House. The voluntary fundraising team have held a number of events, approached local businesses and charitable trusts and have raised over £300,000 of the £400,000 appeal target.
The build is due to start this summer but we still help to raise the £100K shortfall.

Bob Tabb, Group Scout Leader, said: "We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of local people and businesses. The funding already received means that we can get the basic structure built this summer. However, we still need to continue with our fundraising efforts in order to ensure that we can complete the project including the internal fixtures and fittings."
Please help the Berkswell ( 53rd Coventry) Scout Group reach their fundraising target. You can contribute towards this exciting project for the young people in Coventry and Warwickshire by visiting our fundraising page on our website and pledging your support, here:
