Cen­tre’s cups of cheer

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

FOL­LOW­ING its suc­cess­ful bid for an Awards for All grant from the Big Lottery Fund, Hes­keth Bank Com­mu­nity Cen­tre has been cel­e­brat­ing be­ing able to buy new mugs, which have been greatly wel­comed by the lo­cal U3A group.

Diane Ear­les, the com­mu­nity cen­tre’s trea­surer, said: “Bec­consall U3A cof­fee morn­ing was al­ways a strug­gle for us as ev­ery mug and cup we had in the cen­tre was used, most of which had been do­nated or seen bet­ter days.

“These monies have now paid for 150 brand new mugs and the cof­fee morn­ing is a much nicer ex­pe­ri­ence all round.”

The lottery grant has al­ready helped the com­mu­nity cen­tre buy much needed ta­bles and fit van­ity units and sup­ply warm wa­ter in the women’s toi­lets.

Next on the shop­ping list are heaters and floor­ing for the wash­rooms.

Steve Kirby, chair­man, added: “Re­ceiv­ing this award is a mark of qual­ity of the work we are do­ing in the com­mu­nity and we would like to thank the Big Lottery Fund and all the lottery play­ers for this recog­ni­tion and sup­port.”
