Cranham Scout Centre provides residential experiences, activity days, training and corporate days to over 4000 young people and adults every year. Understandably, this costs a lot of money and time throughout the year.

By supporting Cranham (either by fundraising, donating or volunteering) you help us continue to play a vital part in the community and improve the facilities we can provide.

There are many ways to help support Cranham Scout Centre:

  • Replace all of the 80 chairs in our main building (expected cost £800). Generously donated by Mike Stanley MBE

  • Install solar panels (expected cost £17,000).
  • Install an electric, wood burning effect stove in our main hall (expected cost £1,000).

If you are able to, why not sponsor an aspect of our work. This could perhaps be the replacement of existing equipment, the improvement of an existing facility or coming and creating something brand new for us. All sponsors of Cranham Scout Centre will be listed on our website, and a suitable plaque will be added to whatever you have sponsored.

  • Good clean timber including sheet material (ply, chip or hardboard)
