To raise £10k to subsidise local user groups and individuals to take part in leisure/sporting activities who otherwise couldn’t afford to.

by Tranmere Rovers Trust in Birkenhead, Merseyside, United Kingdom

Byrne Avenue Trust was set up to rescue, restore and re-open Byrne Avenue Baths in the heart of Rock Ferry, Wirral.  We have undertaken the first phase of a substantial restoration/renovation and this much loved building opened in January 2022 as a Sports and Community Centre, 90 years after the Foundation Stone was first laid.


The aims of Byrne Avenue Trust are simply: Community; Health; Heritage.

We aim to provide a range of sporting opportunities, community activities and social events for our local community whilst preserving and promoting the history and heritage of this beautiful building. Sports will include football, badminton, table tennis, netball, walking football and Zumba. There will be healthy activities for everyone, including those who may not have been active for a while.



How much do we need?

We have already raised the money to undertake work on the Sports Hall, community room, new kitchen and office and to refurbish the toilets -  the overall cost of phase one being over £600,000. Now we are asking our supporters and the community to help us raise £10,000 to subsidise leisure/sporting activities for local people who can not afford the normal rates we charge for hire fees.

We are in a time when there have been large increases in fuel/energy prices and food costs plus we are still dealing with the long term effects of COVID so money is in short supply for many local people so allowing them to participate in sporting/leisure activities that are affordable is a positive way of improving peoples quality of life which is particularly important for the Rock Ferry/Tranmere area which is one of disadvantage.
