Friends and Fundraising

Faurefold is managed by Girlguiding Surrey East and owned by Girlguiding London South West. The site is managed by a group of volunteers, at the moment mainly members of Girlguiding, their families or friends, but anyone with skills and enthusiasm are welcome to join us. If you would like to help us with the maintenance, fundraising or in some other way, then join us as a Friend of Faurefold.  We will keep you up to date on events and developments on the site.

Over the last 5 years the Faurefold team and supporters have been fundraising to construct the new building.

The new building, erected in 2017 by ADV(UK) of Dorking, was paid for through the generosity of many grant making bodies.

  • These include:
  • London Marathon Charitable Trust
  • 2nd Dorking Guide Trust
  • Surrey County Council
  • Mole Valley District Council
  • Reigate and Banstead Borough Council
  • Peter Harrison Foundation
  • Weston Foundation
  • John Cowan Foundation
  • Surrey Mirror – Heart of the Community
  • Gatwick Community Trust
  • Henry Smith Charity
  • Horley Lions
  • Business Contributions from:
  • Waitrose
  • Menzies
  • Atkins
  • Aviva
  • Tesco
  • Foresters Friendly Society

In order that the building could be completed a loan was required so fundraising is still underway.  There are various activities across the county raising funds.  Contact us if you would like to know more.

Here are other ways you can help.

  • easyfundraising. When you buy items or services online (from a range of around 2000 merchants) by going through a portal site like easyfundraising, a percentage of your spend is donated to Faurefold. The percentage varies by merchant, but Amazon for example gives 2%. To make this even easier there is a little Find and Remind application which automatically routes your purchase through easyfundraising whenever you buy from a participating merchant if you use a PC or Mac.  You can use easyfundraising on a smart phone, but you can’t use Find & Reward, easyfundraising is also a good price comparison site, and has many voucher codes to offer too.
  • mydonate. Sponsored by BT, we’re now able to accept online donations online. You can use this service to send individual donations, or perhaps the results of Unit fundraising.
  • We’re very happy to accept donations by cheque of course, either from individuals or from Units, corporate sponsors etc. Make your cheque payable to Faurefold Fundraising and send it to 46 Blackborough Road, Reigate, RH2 7BX
