Our fundraising drive is up and running! Together we can open the library.
After five years of campaigning we have secured two thirds of the ground floor to operate a community library and public space. We need your support to transform this empty shell into a library that the community can be proud of and which they deserve after fighting for so long.
We need £200,000
- Phase 1 – The Fit Out: £80,000
For flooring, utilities, plumbing, boiler, re-wiring, all internal decoration, creating reception, adults’/children’s sections, office, kitchen, disabled access
- Phase 2 – The Kit Out: £80,000
For shelving, books, broadband, computers, furniture, fittings, equipment, audio visual system, lighting (inc for sight-impaired), heating system, consumables
- Phase 3 – First Year Operation: £40,000 by January 31st 2017
Total = £200,000 by January 31st 2017
UPDATE: We have now raised £76,417.71 (including Gift Aid)!
