A Quarter of a Million Pounds for Fishbourne!

Fantastic news! Our Community Centre is no longer a pipe dream – now it's for real! As well as making a very substantial contribution of £231,000 the Big Lottery Fund award will unlock other sources of funding such as a major grant from West Sussex County Council.

The project team are thrilled with the result which came after six months of working through the Complaints Procedure about the earlier decision not to make an award. "That's all behind us now and we can set about making the dream come true."

If all goes to schedule, the new Centre should be open by Easter 2010. However, we need to raise another £75,000 before we can access the lottery funding. To help with this, we are today launching a new Sponsor Campaign:

Bronze Sponsors: £100 - £4,999
Silver Sponsors: £5,000 - £9,999
Gold Sponsors: £10,000+

An up-to-date list of sponsors will appear in the next issue of Village Voice.

If you or your firm would like to support the project and to have your name published as a sponsor, please send a cheque made payable to Fishbourne Playing Field Association to: Sponsor Campaign, care of Geoff Hand.
