Severndroog Castle

Client: Severndroog Castle

Severndroog Castle is a tower situated on Shooters Hill London in Oxleas Woods. It is an impressive 18th century building with fantastic views over London. It runs an events programme and has a popular café.

Project:

through an HLF grant the organisation was funded to improve its fundraising capabilities and to make the organisation more sustainable.

• To examine their current funding gap of £20k per annum and recommend ways in which this gap could be filled by ongoing fundraising.
• To increase the fundraising skills of the Heritage Manager through training and mentoring.
• To increase the skills and experience of Trustees in fundraising through new recruitment and training.

How we helped:

• CCN worked with Severndroog Castle to develop a fundraising strategy and a case for support. This included applications to Trusts and Foundations, individual donors and company support.
• CCN worked with the Heritage Manager to increase fundraising skills and mentored her through the fundraising process.
• CCN worked with Trustees to improve fundraising awareness and to engage them in modest fundraising initiatives.
• CCN developed a case for support and reviewed all Trust and Foundation applications and gave guidance on follow up and second stage applications.
• CCN attended meetings with the local authority to investigate the possibilities for future support
