Can you help The Cartwheel Centre in Elland get back on track?

The Cartwheel Centre,

Elland needs your help

Since 1965 The Cartwheel Centre has promoted education, social welfare and leisure time activities for the benefit of the people of Elland. Whether it’s youth clubs and support services for our young people or luncheon clubs and reducing loneliness for our older people, we have been at the heart of Elland for 55 years!

However, last year was a difficult one. Due to a number of situations outside of our control, the centre experienced a very hard time and, if not for the dedication of our Management Committee, the centre could have faced closure.

However, things are now returning to normal but the centre needs your help and we are appealing for support from local businesses and individuals to serve on the Management Committee, or offer support in other ways.

Are you able to spare a few hours a week to help the centre upgrade and revamp to a standard in order to continue to be a great venue for everyone’s benefit in the town?

Until recently Youth Services have delivered sessions for local young people from the centre and there is usually a popular luncheon club. We would love to expand on the things we offer local people in Elland and need your help to do so.

If joining the Management Committee isn’t for you, could you support a fundraising campaign or be happy to make a donation?

Some of the skills we need to save the centre

Administration, IT, record keeping, opening and closing the building, overseeing contractors, gaining quotes.

 

You will need to be

  • able to commit to regular meetings and work in between meetings
  • reliable and work with integrity
  • passionate about getting a job done well!

 

If you would like to join us or would like to have an informal chat about what you could offer, please contact Joe Braithwaite, Acting Chair joeb555@outlook.com
