Dudsbury is the only Girlguiding owned campsite in Dorset and is run by volunteers both active within Guiding and outside of Guiding.
In order to do this we rely on usage of the site, grants, fundraising and donations to carry out projects and activities that we have planned. Without funding we would not be able to carry out the work that we do to support girls and women in Guiding.
Fundraising We rely on voluntary contributions from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations or grant giving bodies in order to provide both indoor and outdoor camping facilities for girls and young women.
Donations The generous donations that we receive every year help us to continue to provide great opportunities for all of our members. From helping our adult members to gain new qualifications, to supporting girls and young women on their first trip away from home. We simply wouldn’t be the organisation we are today without the public’s help. If you’d like to make a donation either from you, or on behalf of a loved one, then we have a variety of different options. Contact us today on 01202 572665 or send an enquiry through to email@example.com for more information.
Legacies Legacies are a gift which is left in a will; this can include money or property. You can generously mention charities in your will. Legacy donations allow us to continue providing the support and activities that we do. Recent legacies have been the girls bathroom in The Chalet. Your legacy gift will mean that we will still be able to support girls and women in years to come
We own a strip of land that has fallen in to disuse which neighbours on to the Dudsbury Golf Course. We would like to develop this area for campfire and other types of outdoor cooking and space for other activities for the girls to enjoy such as geocaching, orienteering and archery but the field needs to be cleared of weeds and nettles. We would also like to explore the possibility of using some of this land for over-flow car parking.
We would like to develop a 'quiet contemplation area' in the woods with a circle of tree stump 'seats'.
Our Campfire area on the slope down to the river used to have raked seating and be much larger but has become overgrown and can now only accommodate cramped smaller numbers of children at any one time. It would be great to clear and reinstate the seating area into a much more recognisable space once again.
