Elfin Summer Camp @ Park Farm

Wednesday, 30 January 2019

Woodcraft Park Farm are inviting you to an Elfin Summer Camp at their wonderful site in West Sussex.

Latest grants list

The list is in date order and some deadlines are very soon. They will not be applicable to all of you (most are for specific regions), and you might find that none of them are suitable for your district. I have selected them from the latest Funding Central alert as being the most appropriate for WF districts. I hope that a quick scan of this list will allow you to find those sources appropriate to your district.

We're gathering together ideas from our districts about how to raise funds to support your activities. You will find these in the resources tagged by 'local fundraising', or you can click the links below to go straight to a specific activity.
