Please help us save our centre!
We have been the home for so many social groups, fitness classes and life and employment advice for over 39 years. We now find ourselves in place where if we don't ask for your help then we won't survive to see our 40th birthday :(
The coronavirus lock created a lot of misery and dismay for millions of people. Now we find ourselves out of the lockdown but with a lot of guidance which means we are unable to raise ongoing funds for the Community Centre through our usual means of table top sales, concerts or through our annual summer party. We have been delighted to see a lot of our groups back but, unfortunately, not all of our groups due to their having to shield.
Please help us raise money so we can continue to be available to our groups and to amazing organisations like Hayling Helpers who used us as a base whilst helping everyone during the lockdown. As a self-funding community centre we don't get any help from the council, but are now asking you for your help.
Below are several ways you can help donate to Hayling Island Community Centre, including a crowdfunding website, a free donation from you to us via Amazon Smile and via the tree of thanks which is a tribute to everyone who helped others during the Lockdown, a Tree of Thanks will be on display with the tributes name on it.
HICCA CIO is a registered charity and, since being formed in 1981, has been providing opportunities, events, clubs, classes and courses for the entire community of Hayling. The Centre is very well supported and has over 2000 visitors each week.
Buy a leaf to go on the Tree of Thanks for a minimum £5 donation per leaf to thank and recognise someone special who helped you get through the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Our Tree of Thanks scheme has been set up to pay tribute and leave a lasting legacy to all those who helped the people of our Island during this challenging time; alongside raising funds for our Community Centre to help ensure it can survive post COVID-19.
We are totally self-funding and with no income throughout the pandemic our future is tenuous and all funds will be used to go towards securing our centre’s vital role within our community.
The form can be downloaded and printed at the bottom of this page or picked up from reception and we can take donations in the form of PayPal, cash, cheque or bacs.
Below is the Paypal link. Please ensure you tick gift aid if you are a tax payer as this adds another 25% to your donation, and ensure you write the name of the person whom you are donating a leaf for.
