Our Latest Project for the Centre - Help Us to Raise Funds & Donate Today

Why not Buy-a-Brick (or a few of them) at just £5 each?

We are looking to raise £300,000 to help young people and adults with mobility disabilities access the Watson Scout Centre more safely and easily.
We want to replace the wooden extension with a permanent energy-efficient building and provide more opportunities for adventure to young people. If we don't replace the wooden extension, it will mean that our indoor sleeping capacity will reduce from 36 to 28 beds and the improvements for young and adult users with mobility issues can't go ahead.
The new building will provide not only accessible sleeping accommodation, toilet and shower facilities for those with mobility issues, it will also widen the Centre's scope to further develop use by those undertaking The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. We also aim to have Watson recognised as a centre for camping when undertaking expeditions in the North Yorks Moors National Park.


You can buy-a-brick quickly and easily on our Localgiving page.
