The former Victoria Primary School site IS going to be the Heart of Newhaven Community.

“The Heart of Newhaven (HoN) will be a brand new intergenerational centre for the whole community to enjoy. The Scottish Land Fund (SLF) has awarded us £792,000 and we were given permission to purchase the site.

Victoria Primary School has moved to a new building on a different site and we will be taking over the building SOON.

You helped us once before. We ran a successful Crowdfunder campaign in February last year, to help us cover sundry start-up costs including legal and architect fees. You gave generously, over £6,000 including Gift Aid, and thank you for that.

That helped us move forward. Now we need more help.

With the keys to the site almost within our grasp, we need you, the community, to step forward once again and help us with some very practical issues, so that we can open the doors for immediate use.

We’re creating the Heart for the community and we need the community to support the project in every way they can, especially at this crucial stage. Do please give as generously as you feel able and help us open the doors and get moving.

We will have the building soon but now we need YOUR help to refurbish, furnish and heat it and get it properly up and running, while we build sustainable fundraising and other income.

Support this work via the Crowdfunder page – donate as much or as little as you wish, it all helps!
