Hollinwood truly has the potential to be an amazing asset not just for the local community but for the whole of Greater Manchester and the North West.  We have 30 beautiful acres of woodland and meadows where young people are able to run around and be outdoors - something that we've all missed in the last 12 months.

There's no doubt that creating a brand-new campsite is a daunting prospect.  It involves planning, designing, fundraising and constructing a number of buildings and services that are fit for 21st-century Scouting.

Our small volunteer-team are learning-on-the-job and have done fantastic work so far.  They have raised £105k - out of the £1million that is needed - and have worked with architects to ensure our planning applications are approved.

We are 3 years into the process.  2021 is where we shift up a gear.

We still have a long way to go to realise the full potential of Hollinwood and this is where we need YOU.  Literally you, reading this now!

Do you run a business or organisation that would like to sponsor our building construction?  Buy a Brick for £1,000 and help us get to our target.  Multiple Bricks are available!  We hope to raise 50% of our capital this way.

Your business would be included on our Recognition Wall in our reception building.

Ltd. Companies can pay less Corporation Tax when donating to Charity.

Can you make a monthly or one-off donation?

Are you a fundraiser and can you help us write fundraising applications?  We have a small team, led by our Camp Wardens who write funding bids
