The Acorn Centre

Award - £1000

Website - The Acorn Centre

The Acorn Centre started life as a youth centre for the young people of the area in the mid 1960s. Over the years, with dedication and support from the community and partner organisations, the Centre has continued to grow and now offers facilities that can be used by all ages from 0 to 90 years and beyond, including a Sports Hall; Dance Studio and Function Room; Computer Room and Kitchen/Cafe Area.

Kevin awarded £1000 to the Acorn Centre to contribute towards the cost of a new roof. At the moment the Centre suffers with flooding whenever there is a heavy rainfall, and whilst a temporary fix has been put in place, it is obvious the Centre needs a more permanent solution. Kevin's contribution goes some way to assisting with the estimated £5000 cost of a permanent solution.
