I am raising funds to restore Hazlerigg and District War Memorial Community Centre.
The community centre was built in 1956 with funds from residents of Hazlerigg, to honour those who lost their lives in the two World Wars.
The community centre is used for meetings, fitness classes, mother and toddler groups and is regularly used for parties and other events.
But the building is now in desperate need of repair. It urgently needs a new roof and floor, as well as windows, doors and toilets, and needs to be modernised to be energy efficient and more inviting and accessible.
The community centre was recently given a quote for £107,520 for a new roof, electrics, plumbing works, new flooring, toilet conversion, new doors and windows.
As a war memorial, the building is locally and historically significant. It would be a tragedy to lose this vital community asset due to lack of funding.
All funds raised will go to Hazlerigg and District War Memorial Community Centre and Playing Field, which is a registered charity (Charity no. 522070).
This will allow the charity to make the building safe and accessible and safeguard it for future generations.
