Our current fundraising aim is to raise the money required to carry out the necessary extension and refurbishment work at Pond House to create a home which will accommodate six supported Cohousing members and a co-worker family, a short distance from our main site, in an ideal location in the village of Wadhurst and within very close proximity to all local amenities.
ambitious fundraising target for this whole project is £612,154. We have raised over three quarters of this
already, securing funding from a range of well-respected trusts and
foundations, local community fundraising initiatives, several companies and many
of our own internal fundraising events.
We need your help to meet our target, so we can bring all aspects and details of the property up to the required excellent standard and fit for purpose to enable the supported cohousers to move in by September 2021. We want to equip and fit out the house appropriately, improve access to the building and landscape the grounds.
