Girlguiding Epsom Division has over 600 local girls in Rainbows, Brownies and Guides units throughout the Borough. They are currently fundraising to build a lodge at their campsite in Horton Country Park, Epsom and have already raised over £120,000! 

The Lodge they are having built will provide much needed facilities including full disabled access plus toilets, kitchen and showers so the beautiful area can be used all year round, whatever the weather for a number of different activities. The lodge would not only benefit Girlguiding and Scouting groups, Girlguiding Epsom Division would be able to host outdoor events for the wider local community by using the campsite and lodge as a base for fun runs, cycle rides and many other community events for all ages and abilities  

The fundraising has already paid to have a watertight, secure shell of the building constructed but the charity is now looking for funding to complete the internal part of this project.  

Epsom Division Commissioner Mary Zoeller said: “We are absolutely delighted that we have managed to raise over £120,000 already for this project. We are continuing to fundraise by running many events and applying for grants but we still need just over £50,000 to complete the project so we’ve got a way to go! If anyone can help us with donations of items or help we would be delighted to hear from them.”
