How is the fund raising going?
In addition to the generous private member donations, made to the the clubs specific projects and the commitment of Club funds, we have applied to a number of funders including Peoples Postcode Lottery, National Lottery, Enovert, Tesco Community Fund and Persimmon Homes Community Champions. We will update you as we hear back from each of these funders.
We still have a long way to go but we are confident that a combination of all these funding streams and the support of our members will help us to reach our target and ensure we can complete these vital improvements to the clubhouse.
A recap of what the Club is raising funds for:
Raising the Roof
Like everyone the club is facing significantly higher energy costs which we hope to reduce through the use of solar panels fitted to the roof. With a significant base load in the summer, coolers, fridges and deep freezes running 24/7, fitting solar will help us reduce overall energy costs.
Cash for the Classroom
The downstairs classroom floods regularly leading to significant cost in repairs, by improving the rebuilding the walls for better tidal resilience and replacing the windows to be more energy efficient, we believe we can make the whole space better for everyone to use all.
The current balcony has reached the end of its life and needs some renovation before safety is compromised. This also means changes to the current fire escape to meet present-day regulations and modernising the appearance of the whole thing.
The upstairs toilets have required an overhaul for some years. This redesign and upgrade will include the provision of an accessible toilet and a change to the office layout with modern and more hygienic fixtures and fittings.
*All non members who would like to join as a result of winning this prize, either as an individual or as part of a household where 1 or more people are already members of Dabchicks, will be required to complete an online application form and be subject to committee approval as per the club rules.
