Our project is to make improvements to the building we have our Community Food Store in, currently it is very run down with leaks in the roof, no toilet for our volunteers and could do with a total refurb.
The full community would benefit from this project, both those who use our Community Food Store and those that volunteer as currently for example there is no toilets for our volunteers who tend to be there 4 hours at a time.
Also we would make the building accessible for those with disabilities as it currently isn't which could lead to preventing them accessing our service. The money would be used for the above plus painting, new flooring and new doors while also making it more secure as we previously had two break ins.
We have applied for funding which unfortunately was unsuccessful, which is why this is our next step to ensure we have a building fit for purpose and the community it serves.
