About this cause

About our cause

We are one of the largest and fastest growing Districts in Hampshire - England's biggest Scouting County with over 17,500 youth members. Camping in the wild outdoors at Pinsent Campsite has been an essential part of Winchester Scouting for over 80 years. Countless youngsters have grown up with this great experience. Many Winchester people hold fond memories of waking up under canvas at Pinsent to the sound of woodpeckers and nightingales in the early morning mist, and cooking their own breakfast over open fires. To this day, we make no charge for Winchester Scout Groups and their 900 Scouts camping at Pinsent. A vital part of managing this outstanding experience is having a number of outbuildings on the edge of Pinsent to provide all the essential facilities. These buildings are long overdue replacement. By a single building with facilities more suited to the needs of the 21st Century. The total estimated project cost is £450k. We already have £50k from limited reserves. We are appealing to 8,000 people who have camped at Pinsent in the last 80 years to each gift us £50. Over 1,000 of these are from Winchester District today - our 900 Scouts' parents and all our leaders and supporters. Other milestones are to match our first £50k with a similar grant or donation; and to match that again with up to further £100k grants or donations to hit successive milestones to start a build by phases in the Autumn. Please help. Every £50 will make a difference and help spread the word.
