Sarah Prall, HDCC Fundraising Committee
Our proposed New Hall and Sport Pavilion at the Playing Field, School Lane

Thanks to your input we plan to build a combined Village Hall and Sports Pavilion at the Playing Field, this will enable us to offer fantastic new facilities for all existing community groups, sports clubs and private users. In addition we hope our new facilities will enable us to launch new activities in response to community consultation.

Fundraising: The Story So Far

Since our inception in 2008 we have raised over £80,000*. All the work undertaken so far has been funded through local fund raising events, grants and donations, no public money has been spent. We believe that we can fund 100% of our project through grants and donations.

Here are a few ways you can help

Keeping it simple, we know this is a tough time but if you can, please donate now or become a Sponsor.
Donate now via JUST GIVING
here you can either make a one off donation or set up a regular payment. Even better, if you are a UK tax payer, click on Gift Aid and we will receive an extra 25p for every £1 you donate direct from the government. Could you donate regularly as little as £2 per month via Just Giving? With Gift Aid we would receive a donation of £30 annually.

Host a Fundraising Event for us – Here are some ideas
How about a bake sale or a Bake Off ! Perhaps a coffee morning with friends or a yard sale are great places to start. We received a £20 donation from a coffee morning recently, all your donations make a difference to us, thank you so much.

Hold or take part in a sponsored Event. Take on a challenge for the New Village Hall and see what you can achieve! Whether you run, swim, or cycle, you can have fun and get fit while raising vital funds and awareness. Choose your event and get moving! You can choose us as your preferred charity for your next marathon/walk/ dance-athon!

Hold a Birthday Fundraiser for us. All the details are on the Just Giving website, simply create the event and select Hadlow Down New Village Hall as the beneficiary. This is such a simple fundraiser, ask friends and family to donate to Hadlow Down New Village Hall instead of sending a card or gift. One of our Committee recently raised over £200 for us! Imagine if we could inspire 10 or 20 more Birthday fundraisers like this!

Whatever you decide to do please let us know so that we can help to publicise your event and celebrate your achievements.

Become a Corporate Sponsor we are very interested in working with local businesses if you would like to talk to us about becoming a sponsor or helping us by donating professional services please contact Bob Lake 01825 830857.

With your help we have already raised in excess of £80,000. Check out just some of the brilliant fundraising events we have held recently that villagers, friends and family have so generously supported…
