We as a club has taken the first steps towards buying the land which we
use to fly model aircraft and helicopters. The first steps being the
decision to buy,
we are now contemplating the next steps which include funding. We are
£30,000 for the land, with further funding in the future for a clubhouse,
workshop (Which would include the tools required to make, repair models
investment would be approx £75,000.
The club currently has about 110 members and we envisage this substantially
due to the additional available facilities as well as the facilities
available for flying but as
we have found alot of the older members like being a member of a club and
building but unfortunately it is beyond there physical abilities to fly
My question is to you all out there, is there anyone who has had any
raising the necessary funding for the same?
Currently we are considering, National Lottery (Not sure which award to
claim for, we would
very much appreciate some advice), talking to the local council authorities
for grants (Again
not sure what grants are available, we would very much appreciate some
advice), talking to
local businesses for sponsorship, also fund raising events such as
organising bring and buys,
As much advice as possible would be very much appreciated.
