We took ownership of the old Clydesdale Bank building in Rosyth and we need help refurbishing it into a vibrant and welcoming Community Hub!

We're still collecting donations

On the 20th May 2021 we'd raised £2,134 with 73 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Who we are

We’re EATS Rosyth. We’re a charity in Fife, Scotland, and we focus on sharing and growing food.

For four years, we’ve run things from our tiny Community Hub, which used to be the town’s post office. We’ve been sharing surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away, serving meals, running events and passing on cooking skills, with the help of our small army of incredible volunteers (here's one of them, Frank, talking about his experience with EATS).

Why we need your support

Our problem was – and we can’t emphasise this enough – our old Hub really was TINY. And it kept filling up with loads of great people! So after a long period of trying to find bigger premises, we were rather excitingly able to get funding and complete the purchase of a new building. It’s an old bank right in the middle of Rosyth. It’s just what we need: a much bigger place we can call our own. So, it’s going to provide us with the space and opportunity to deliver many new services and help more people.

Here's a picture of it!

Now, we’ve got to get on with converting and refurbishing the building to ensure that we can use it to do great things. There’s quite a bit we need to get done before we can move in, including:

  • Roof repairs and construction
  • Joinery
  • Plumbing
  • Bathroom fitting
  • Electrical work
  • New windows and doors
  • New heating system
  • Flooring and carpets
  • New furniture
  • Security
  • Kitchen fitting
  • Shop fittings
  • Signage

How you can help

Simply put, we need donations to get the above work done and help us create the perfect Hub for our town.

If we can get the help we need, our Hub will be a focal point of Rosyth for years to come – a genuinely important social space which will be used by the whole community, for the benefit of everyone. It’ll be a place you can shop, eat, drink, cook, volunteer, learn, meet, and much more besides.

Whilst we do have some funds in place to start initial phases of the work and some grant applications pending, we don’t have enough to get it all done.

As well as donations through this crowdfunder, we'd welcome any support that can be offered from the community, especially from the wider local business community and relevant trades.

If you can help in any way and want to get in touch, please drop us a message here or email [email protected] with your name and contact details. Thank you!
