There is an ongoing need to raise funds for the Centre. Normally we fundraise by holding events and hiring out our facilities, plus income from Coffee Shop. The Covid-19 crisis means that we are operating in a very reduced capacity which is having a major impact on our income.
Our focus in 2020 was the new Changing Places area and Childrens’ & Adult’s toilet facilities. Centre Manager Maureen Richardson BEM worked hard to obtain grants to help fund the work. We are very pleased with the work carried out and look forward to opening it up to the public when government regulations allow.
We would like to thank Awards for All, Halton Lune Trust, The Foyle Foundation, The Bernard Sunley Foundation and Lancashire Environmental Foundation for their grant funding.
These grants did not cover the entire cost so we have used a significant part of our reserves to pay the balance. We therefore need to appeal for donations. Here’s how you can make a donation:
By bank transfer to:
- Account Name: Halton Community Association
- Sort Code: 40 33 15
- Account Number: 51426613
Please put DONATION and your surname & initials as the reference.
By cheque – made out to Halton Community Association, please send with a covering letter to Halton Community Association, The Centre @ Halton, Low Road, Halton, Lancaster, LA2 6NB
Take a donation of cash or cheque to the Centre Office or Coffee Shop when we are open.
If you are a UK tax payer please download and complete the Charity Gift Aid declaration form below. The gift aid declaration requires the donor to give their title, full name and address. Email your form to email@example.com or enclose it with your donation. You can also complete a form here when the Centre is open.
We can then claim the tax back from HMRC and thus receive an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It will not cost you any extra.
