Heritage Centre Appeal Raises £17,000 in First Two Weeks!!

The public's response to our match funding appeal for the Mountsorrel & Rothley Community
Heritage Centre has been remarkable, with over £17,000 raised in the first two weeks!

We launched our "Sponsor a Brick" appeal in the hope that the public would share our belief that the heritage centre will bring significant benefit to our local communities. It is clear from your response that you are firmly behind us!

Our thanks go to the Loughborough Echo for running an article on our appeal and 103 The Eye for giving us the opportunity to talk about the project on their Sunday morning radio show.

We have £56,000 match funding to raise by July before the £540,000 grant from Lafarge Tarmac's Landfill Communities Fund will be released. The heritage centre must be complete by August 2015 as per the conditions of the grant.

There is still a long way to go to reach our target. If you have donated already or sponsored one or more bricks, thank you very much indeed! If you haven't donated yet please do so as soon as you can. The details can be found here "Sponsor a Brick".
