Big Lottery News

Carol has continued to work with the Big Lottery team by giving two telephone interviews since the beginning of the year, with an official monitoring visit in late June. The feedback, we are pleased to say, has been all around positive and we look forward to maintaining and increasing activities at the Centre with their help and support.

We are now at the end of the first of a five year funding bid that was awarded to Crownway Community Centre in June 2010. We are already close to or have succeeded in accomplishing many of our proposed outcomes, which focus around:

  • Developing a strong volunteer programme; we now have over twenty experienced volunteers who dedicate hundreds of hours of their time to the centre every month
  • Successful training for at least fifty individuals each year in a range of fields
  • Promoting the health, wellbeing and social inclusion of the over-fifties via a gentle exercise program and other activities
  • Establishing strong links with an array of key organisations in the borough for the benefit of the community
  • Providing social activities for 150 young people by the end of the project
