FetLor’s Club House is a wooden hut, built in the early 1960s. It has served us well for over 40 years. However, it can’t last much longer and it is our objective to replace it over the next couple of years.
The club and its activities are located on an important site. There is a strong territorial attitude amongst young people in the area. Our site, whilst adjacent to many of these territories, is on neutral ground. This makes us uniquely positioned to appeal to the broadest subset of young people as well as deal with the cross-territorial issues. So, we want to rebuild on the current site - rather than capitalise on the funds we could get from property developers keen to buy the land.
To achieve this rebuild goal we need help. We have plans in place not only for the building, but for its sustained success as an asset to the community, and most importantly to the young people. With this vision in place all we need now is the funds to put it into action.
The rebuild is budgeted to cost £1.5million. For a charity where every donation or funding goes toward providing facilities and services for our members, this fundraising is a significant challenge. It is, however, a hurdle that can be met with the support and generosity of those who share our vision for an ambitious project that will improve the lives of our members, and strengthen the wider community.
