At Wild Wolf Explorer Scout Unit we are always aiming for new heights. We know our Explorers stay safe, have fun and develop best when they have a wide range of modern, serviceable equipment at their disposal, along with well-trained instructors and leaders.
Last year we launched our Future Development Fund so that we can continue to achieve these aims, and we have already completed Part 1 of the Wolves Lane renovations.
The fund exists to raise money for new equipment for the Explorers, renovate our storage and support Explorers in hardship.
The first major project that the Fund completed was the renovation of our trailer storage at Wolves Lane. As well as our minibus the Unit owns four large trailers for our canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards and they used to be stored on rough broken ground that is often fly-tipped and is not suitable. Read about the renovation HERE, which took two weeks, some early starts and a 40-tonne lorry.
WOLVES LANE PROJECT
As these photos show, our trailers finally have somewhere suitable to live, but we are not stopping there.
To improve security and demarcate the area that we hire for our trailers we would like to add gates at the front. This would have the added benefit of stopping young children in the vicinity of the Scout Hall from being tempted to climb on the trailers! The cost of adding gates to the concrete foundation is approximately £500.
If we can raise an extra £1500 we could add a corrugated plastic roof to the area, which would keep the UV rays, rain and leaves (and bird droppings!) off of our boats. This would mean the boats and trailers last longer, as they currently spend most of their time sitting outdoors in the elements.
The Unit will be carrying out fundraising in order to help finance this project. However, if you would also like to donate towards WWESU’s Future Development Fund, then we would be very grateful! You can do so by filling out the form linked below and returning it to one of our Leaders, or to North London Scout District’s Book Keeper, as detailed on the form.
