For almost ten years we have been providing free, exciting, creative and innovative activities for the children of this community. 

FunQuest is currently overseen by a board of four Trustee volunteers/superheroes who meet once a month.  They have a wide set of skills and experience in fundraising, finance, marketing, IT, youth and teaching.  The board employs a Clerk and a Play Leader who take care of the paperwork and day to day running of our organisation.

We already have the funds, the systems & procedures, the contacts, the resources and the credentials to continue well into 2017/18.  Most importantly, we also have recently recruited a wonderful Play Leader who can inspire and deliver all our future events.

We have a charitable constitution and are registered with the Charities Commission.  We have a fantastic website and automated booking channel. Our marketing strategy using Facebook and the website is working extremely well and events are booked up quickly. The necessary policies and procedures for Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) Child Safeguarding, risk assessments and insurance are all in place. Our banking and accounting systems are established and our ability to find and win external funding is excellent.

Since our creation:-

  • We’ve brought funds of £130,00.00 into the community
  • We built a PlayTrail in West Park Meadow
  • We’ve provided over 120 events for the children of Western Downland area

Without a positive response to this appeal, two long serving current Trustees will retire in February 2017 and FunQuest will be forced to close.

If you have the passion to make a difference to the lives of our children, please email We'll respond immediately, meet up with you and answer all your questions with full confidentiality.






The FunQuest team would like to say a big THANK YOU! for coming along and supporting our summer events. We had over 150 children take part this summer, a fantastic turn out!
