We need your help

We've a mountain to climb to raise £250,000.

 Plas Dol-y-Moch, Coventry's outdoor education centre, has provided high quality educational residential courses for over 50 years to Coventry's schools, pupils and communities.

Our courses are great fun and successfully combine adventure with learning.

Since the centre opened in 1966, over 100,000 young people have been on courses which are designed to promote personal and social development and effective team-working, help young people to manage risk, become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

The number of young people in our city is rising, and we want all young people to have the opportunity to come on courses at the centre. So, we need your help to increase the number of places we can provide. To do this, we need to make the centre bigger. This will cost £750,000.

The good news is that we've secured £500,000 from Coventry City Council via a Council-backed loan, but we need to raise the balance of £250,000.
