With a little help from our friends!
We recently won £4000 from the in-store vote for a community grant from Tesco’s. This will enable us to create a shed and gardening area for our clients. Thank you to the community and to Tesco/Groundforce for their support.
Major refurbishments for The Risborough Centre- Scheduled start 2019!
The centre has building works planned to start in April 2019 to completely refurbish the downstairs area. This will create new learning opportunities for our clients, provide safe & comfortable surrounding and allow us to maintain the building and ensure the centre’s sustainability for the future.
Our donors are our greatest asset
It was through the overwhelming support of many local individuals and organisations that we were able to buy the freehold of the Princes Centre from Bucks County Council for the sum of £200,000 only two years after forming the charity. However, the work did not stop there.
As a social enterprise we are not allowed to make a profit from our activities, so any surplus is ploughed back into the Centre. However that surplus is limited as we make every effort to keep our daily charges as low as possible while still offering value for money in comparison with other care facilities. So any further upgrades to the building and our facilities has to be funded through fundraising activities, and this is where you can help us.
The Centre hosts a number of fundraising events throughout the year, from Bingo and Quiz evenings to concerts and other external activities. Details of these can be found on the Diary section of our News page.
The main ways in which you can make a donation to the Princes Centre are:
- Pledging to fund a specific improvement or facility.
- Call us on 01844 345105
- You can also download a Gift Aid form which will mean that the government will add 25% to the value of your donation.
- You could make a regular contribution to the Centre by downloading and completing a Standing Order form and taking it to your bank.
- Consider using your Will to pass on a legacy to the Princes Centre.
If you would like to offer support in any way, we would love to hear from you on 01844 345105 or email email@example.com or you can send a cheque made payable to The Princes Risborough Centre Limited,
