Fleur de lys miners institute is a thriving community building run by dedicated volunteers who put their hearts and soul into running this building as a friendly and safe hub for the local community.

- Tiny Tekkaz
- Fitness clubs
- Youth Clubs
- Boot camps
As we all know, Covid has put a stop to all inside activities for the past 4 months so the building and volunteers has really had to work hard to keep the building running ready to open the doors again soon. Thanks to the support of some of our tenants this has been a success however twice in the past 2 months we have been broken into and vandalised. This has really dissapointed us as we have worked so hard to keep this building open.
We are voluntary run and rely on donations and funding (which we have applied for but there are long time frames) to fund what we need but we need security for our building ASAP. Without new cameras, secure doors and alarms... Who knows what will happen next time someone breaks in and we don't want all our hard work to be ruined. The young people in the community needs this building safe!
What do we need the money for?
All funds will be spent on securing the building with cameras, alarms and gates for the doors.
With the help of the local community we can make sure this building remains the heart of Fleur de Lys and allow the surrounding community to keep using the facilities.
Thank you so much in advance!
