There are a wide range of capital projects required for the lake. The project has so far been entirely privately funded by Doug Hilton and has taken a huge amount of money to get it as far as this. Although committed to taking the development works forward, more funding will mean it can proceed at a faster pace.
We would welcome any form of gift aid, legacies and sponsorship, with a wide range of wish list items from the simple provision of a tree, bench or life saving equipment upwards.
Full recognition of any gifts made will be given and unlike many other organisations, you will be able to specify exactly where the money is to be spent.
