The New Village Hall Committee has worked hard over the last few years to consult with you on what you would like your New Village Hall to provide. Thanks to your input we plan to build a community hub and sport pavilion to 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. We have agreed a design and crucially secured Planning Permission. Now we can begin our fundraising in earnest. But we need your help.
Could you support us today to help build the New Village Hall for our Community? As a village hub the new hall provides facilities, services, activities and socialising space for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
FUNDRAISING to build the New Hall. We need your help !
Since our inception in 2008 we have raised £70,148.29*. All the work undertaken so far has been funded through grants and donations, no public money has been spent. We believe that we can fund 100% of our project through grants and donations.
We will be applying for major grant funding from large charities and Trusts but we will need to demonstrate we can raise funds here in our own Community. As a charity, with no ability to put on fundraising events in 2020 to generate income, due to Covid, the New Village Hall has been hit hard by the lockdown.
Now we need to ask for your help. We know this is a tough time but if you can, please donate now or become a Sponsor. With your help, we can build the New Village Hall for you – and everyone in our community to enjoy. Our current goal is to raise £10k towards paying for a Quantity Surveyor’s report and detailed construction drawings. Once we have these we can apply for major grant funding for larger specific elements of our build.
Here are a few ways you can help
Donate now via JUST GIVING here you can either make a one off donation or set up a regular payment. Could you donate regularly as little as £2 per month via Just Giving
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.
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.
We hope to put on our own fundraising events in the coming months as the pandemic restrictions ease, look out for details on our website and FB page.
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.
