Weʼre raising £3,000 to help Maes-Y-Coed Community Centre & Garden projects for development.
- Cardiff, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
THE CENTRE -
On the 1st April 2015 Jubilee Community Trust became responsible for the running of the centre. The trust aimed to make the building more utilised and to become the heart of the community. The centre has been transformed from only being open 30 hours a week to now a fantastic 80 hours a week over 7 days. It was tough, and we were rewarded by the support from members of the community who volunteered their time and our users who supported us throughout the whole process. The aim is to ensure our centre develops to increase our passion about social inclusion, the vision is for the community centre to be run by the locals for the benefit of everyone living nearby.
THE GARDEN -
Maes-Y-Coed Community Garden was visioned by our hard working trustee Darren Smart who brought together a group of volunteers to create a beautiful community garden and allotment area for all the locals to come and enjoy, just to sit or join the volunteer Saturday garden club. For the past 18 months this has been a huge project for them all and they were able to cut the ribbon to open the community garden with the kind help of Lisa George (Beth Tinker) from Coronation Street on April 21st 2018. This project as well as the centre is continual week in week out through all weathers.
Maggie Dolman and Sophey Mills will be taking the jump in Swansea very soon and are raising money to help the centre develop in their projects! This centre is a non-profit organisation registered by companies house. An inspiring centre to raise money for!
