This project will modernise and refurbish a 50 year old community centre that is in poor condition and expensive to maintain. The refurbishment includes the purchase of equipment for specific activities that take place in the centre, such as a projector screen for the IT Hub, and mirrors for the dance studio. It will allow the entrant to make the centre more sustainable, and better able to meet the needs of the community now, and in the future. The Centre wish to refurbish and introduce a Community Café which will offer a warm safe place for all the community focusing on the elderly and Teenagers.

I have known the staff at the Acorn Centre for many years, from a youth club member to being a member of the youth work team. The centre has always been a central hub for the surrounding community and would really benefit from the Peoples Millions.
