To date, we have raised £281,000 for the Centre project through the support and generosity of both our local and the wider community. This money will go towards the construction cost of the new Centre.

Help Fund Our Centre Fit-Out

We are now fundraising to kit out our new Community and Recreation Centre with furniture and equipment to make it fully operational.

We have secured the funding to build the new Centre, but we have unfortunately been unsuccessful to date in securing funding to fit out the Centre.  To do this we need to raise £150,000. We are currently waiting to hear from 3 funders – if they say ‘Yes’, this will put us well on our way.  Please help us reach our target by donating what you can so that we can provide the facilities and services our community desperately needs and deserves.

What We Need

This is what we need to complete the Centre and make it fully operational:

  • Fitness Centre Equipment   £48.0k
  • Kitchen Cabinets, Electrical Goods and Utensils   £39.4k
  • Community Room Furniture  £10.2k
