HONEYPOT CHARITY. OUR FUNDING AND WORK.


Honeypot outdoor eating and activities pavilion.

Honeypot identified a need for an outdoor area which could be used for eating and group activities, whilst protected from the weather. This project is totally funded by New Forest Rotary Club with a matching District grant.   By the 23rd of June 2015 the basic timber ground works were completed and it was time for hands on activity by Rotarians Fred, Sam, Robin and Philip.  The weather was dry and sunny and it was possible to apply 3 coats of a protective layer.

The next stage will be to fix the weather proof sails and cappings for the support timbers, and select a poem for the plaque.

Pavilion completed and Rotary plaque presented. November 2015

Children at Honeypot take a break from their preparations for Halloween to listen to inspirational  words from Winnie the Pooh.  Philip Dinn the Vice President of The New Forest Rotary Club presented the plaque to a young carer who read out the words -

"Promise me you will always remember:  You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. " A.A.Milne

Words that have a special meaning if you are a young carer having to look after parents and siblings. 

The outdoor activity facility was made possible by a donation of £5,000 from Rotary International raised by New Forest Rotary Club Past President Robin Long and Rotary District 1110, represented by Richard Maunder.  Emma Larter, fund raiser for Honeypot was on hand to enjoy the activities which gives the young carers a chance to just enjoy being children.

(The 'all weather' aspect of the pavilion certainly proved its worth on the day)
