Mess Hut fundraising update

The new Mess Hut has been greatly appreciated by all the young people and leaders who used it over the summer. We have now negotiated a final cost with our builders, and there’s just 3% left to raise!

The building costs were £714,280. With professional fees, furnishings, the adaptation of other buildings on site and sundry other costs, our total spend on the Mess Hut is £876,890. To this we are now adding solar panels at a cost of £11,605, making a grand total of £888,495.

After taking into account future pledges of around £20,000, our appeal currently stands at £864,897, which is 97% of the total bill — thanks to many wonderful supporters.

Can you help with the last 3%? We just need to raise a further £23,598. Thank you!
