This month the SO45 Lottery will see one CASH Prize winner receive 50% and 50% will be going to St Anne’s Community Centre based in Hythe.
St Annes Neighbourhood Centre, Butts Ash is run and managed by the Charity – Butts Ash Community Association for the benefit of the local community.
All the committee are unpaid volunteers.
Last year the “Centre” was in a very difficult place financially but is now making strides forward in the right direction. In the last year a five year business plan has been written and approved and some grant monies received. They are planning further improvements and are looking for over £40,000 to achieve this.
Groups currently using the building range from young people’s dance classes, pre -school (in a dedicated area), mums and toddlers, elderly luncheon club, keep fit, chess and flower clubs and a number of parties and other one off events. On a Sunday morning there is also church service.
The Community Centre and all its volunteers are an integral part of our community that without would be sorely missed. In order to help keep these projects going, we need to help them where we can which is exactly why we would like to support them in Octobers Lottery draw..
Currently the most urgent work required is:-
- Insulation around the pipework.
- Upgrade the electrics in the main hall which has only 3 x 3 pin sockets.
- Another radiator is needed in the small hall.
