Why donate?

Please donate and help us complete this much needed community project - The Beacon Hub. 


This project has been shaped, crafted and developed with the help of our community. We have chatted, discussed and taken on board suggestions from many individuals and groups in our community.

This has formed the basis of our Community Audit in 2019. These ideas have fed into the plan and design of this community space...a space with inclusivity and accessibility at the heart of the design.

Thank you to all the charities, businesses, counsellors, local councillors, school children, families with young children, elderly and professionals who have helped us on this journey.
