I am looking for a 12x12 tent for my cadet unit any one got one lying around
Try the local scouts if its just for a loan. If it is for permanent use maybe the Masons,or I would suggest you contact either the local Lions or Round Table who would be willing to buy one for your group.
thank you we are getting some funding Frome them with there being almost 28000 members you would think that some of them would have connections well it was a 28000 to 1 shoot didn't think I would get much response thanks for posting
Bill, I don't know about all councils but ours has a fund called Early Help, it used to be called PAYP which stood for Positive activities for young people. Your project is just the sort of thing that would be suitable. As long as you are totally inclusive and have all the CRB checks ( or whatever it's called now) you could apply for a grant.
Worth a try anyway. Don't expect they front line customer services staff to know about it, ask for their Youth or safe guarding officer.
In fact tell me who your district and county council are and I'll look it up for you?
I've just applied for a hefty sum for a project I plan to start in April, taking youngsters from troubled families to try different sporting activities during the school holidays.
we are working with east riding
Ok, they have a grant called PAG - Postive Activites Grant but you have just missed the deadline, which was the 14th Feb. It might still be worth contacting them as our council release the money in stages and there is a 2nd chance to apply in the summer. Admittedly the timeline doesn't say there is a 2nd wave, but then council websites always need updating.
Then next one is a Sport, Play and Arts grant with a Extended Oppotunities grant with in it. Again you have missed the latest application but this one definitely has more than one application round, although the fact sheet on the website is out of date, so again another phone call.
Your own town council has nothing. Who do you pay your council tax too?
we didn't miss the decline they are prats they were to slow in processing the information application almost six months work down the drain we are not short of funding applications but from time to time some one may have something laying around they don't want that was the point of the post if some one donates then that's as good as money in the bank for the kids
its a few hundred staying in the unit funds
il buy this for you if its what you need,,
il chip in the first £25.OO TOWARDS THIS ,,,, ITS £150 IM ASSUMING ITS A BARGAIN,
Arr, so you knew about that fund. Sorry to hear you didn't get any money from them. I know from bitter experience what a nightmare the forms are. It's taken me two days doing virtually nothing else to do the one I have just submitted.
Good luck I hope someone has a suitable tent tucked away somewhere.
is for a young cadet group or a scout group like disabled scouts or similer???
is it a charity or somthing like that
Bargain come on im sure we can club get this,
IM IN £25.00,, :Cool:
FORGET IT I JUST SAW ITS THE LINER ONLY,, ,, HOWEVER I SHALL KEEP ON THE SEARCH,,
yes I run a independent cadet group shelf funding taking kids off the streets hoping to urn then round and this e have done in the last year
ts zulu face book
Was just about to post, it's the liner for winter use. Fantastic idea though. :thumb:
I was just hoping that some one had a tent laying around ther being a lot of ex military on her or someone still with connections its a lovely thought someone offering £25 please don't fell offended but there are far more worthy cases than ts Zulu we run on a shoe string we beg and borrow
we have taken some kids and turned them round.
and had a grate time doing it we will find one I am a patient man meantime we have the bashers and two caravans thanks:thumb:
Something like this Bill?
yes mike expensive bit of kit
we have a secretary that is no working very hard it takes the pressure off me a bit she has so many ideas but they all take time
would a big massive tent help you out or does it have to be an army one??
would this do the job???
Perhaps you could approach any local military units in your area and see if they could donate a 12x12 to your unit,just a thought
Or Territorial Army.
May I also suggest your local Voluntary service council who have fund raising adviser. There should be a community foundation for your area,who could help.
And finally because of the valuable work you are doing,in place of what the statutory agencies should be doing,many grants should leap out at you.
Another place to consider is The Morgan Foundation http://www.morganfoundation.co.uk/
I am a trustee of a similar youth project and the Foundation has been very helpful.
