WiNSpace – Now is the Time

We have come such a long way and are now working hard to sign building contracts in July, for construction to start in the Autumn. We have clear sight on £1.7m funding.

We now need the final £300,000 to ensure a fully functioning centre is delivered. Is this something you can help us towards?

Any amount you, your business or employer can donate, will help complete the brand-new community building to replace the ‘temporary’ classrooms.

Meeting our £2,000,000 target will allow us to create not just a building but a special place, which will serve generations to come and honour those who had the vision to start the community centre 45 year ago.
