As a community centre, we welcome thousands of visitors each year and host hundreds of classes, workshops, clinics and events.
As a venue, a bricks and mortar building, however, we sometimes struggle as a charity to secure funding; it's difficult to apply to funding organisations for the money to buy toilet rolls and tea bags, to pay for the electricity and water bills, to ensure someone is here every day to open up the centre and lock the place down.
Such things, as one would expect, get taken for granted. But if we weren't able to open our doors, all the wonderful things we host would have to find new bases, which is absolutely what we would never want to happen.
It doesn't matter what you can donate. Every Little Helps.
