MYDG’s social enterprise arm MY Adventure is looking for your support to help create a haven for the area’s young people in the Borders countryside. They’ve found the ideal place – Towford Outdoor Centre near Jedburgh (above) – and with your help they can transform the building into something really special.
MY Adventure’s director Johnny Kinross explained: ” The building has been empty and unused for 17 years and it urgently needs some heating and a rewire if it is to survive its first winter in our care.
“We also seek to make it more sustainable and more importantly more accessible to people with disabilities – many of the old systems are now considered unsafe. The roof needs patching and the grounds have become hugely overgrown and inaccessible.
“We have a fantastic community of volunteers who can provide the labour – we are of course always looking for more, especially people with trade’s experience! – but funds are needed to put in a wood burning stove, re-wire the building, replace two windows and to upgrade the shower/toilet block to make it accessible to people with disabilities.”
