The Allison Cargill House committee actively fund-raise to help toward the cost of keeping the house up to an excellent standard. You can find updates on our fundraising activities below.
Support ACH and start your Christmas shopping early!
In order to ensure that ACH can continue to operate during these difficult times we are going to run a series of fundraising events. We hope that you can promote them widely in both the guiding and wider community. ACH will have to remain closed for the foreseeable future until units are ready to return to residential events, which means we have no income to cover running costs.
We will soon be offering online orders of souvenirs.

Upgrading the leaders Rooms
We are currently upgrading both leaders rooms. One of which will bein memory of Audrey Morris. We received £1795 from the funeral collection for Audrey and a further £600 from Gifford Golf Club who held a memorial golf tournament in Audrey’s memory.
The Outdoor Play Area
Thank you to Stewart Milne Homes for donating a flag pole and to Emtec Branding for installing it. Units who stay at ACH in the future can once again fly their flag while staying at the house. Thanks to East Lothian Education Trust who have given us a grant of £500 to update our stock of outdoor games. These will be purchased soon and will be ready for use once the house reopens.
We have been working toward upgrades to the play area outside the house over the past few years. We would like to thank all those who have made donations toward this endeavor for those who stay at the house to enjoy.
How your support helps
We are continually fundraising to maintain all the facilities in the house to keep them fresh and of a good standard.
We are very grateful to all our generous supporters especially during these challenging times.
You can see our current goal and our funds raised so far on the right.
