Build it Better

Build it Better campaign

Over more than 40 years, The Venture House has served us well, giving shelter and warmth to hundreds/thousands of visitors. But it’s seen better days and now we’re on a mission to knock it down and #builditbetter so we can provide young people with a great base for their outdoor adventures.

At our Trustees meeting on 15th June 2016, it was agreed to launch a fundraising campaign to raise £500,000 to create a new residential building for use by youth groups.  We aim to have this new facility in place by 2020.  This is a major project for the site and we need everyone’s help so please get involved!

2017 activities





We have a whole range of fundraising events taking place on site in 2017.  For more details click here or for details of our challenge badge see below.
