The Appleby Hub was selected by the Co-op Local Community Fund in September 2016 to receive funding to support the work it’s doing in the community.
Co-op Members were offered the opportunity to choose which local organisation will benefit from a 1% donation available from the Co-op. The more members spend, the more money goes to causes in their area. The Appleby Hub has been selected as one of these local causes and we were overwhelmed by the volume of support we received,
In April 2017, £2186 was donated to the Appleby Hub, with 100% of the funds going towards both the ongoing maintenance of the building, and the development of activities which will benefit local residents.
The vision for the Appleby Hub is a venue for local community interests, for all ages and abilities, with a particular focus on creativity and wellbeing.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who chose the Hub as their local cause. We feel incredibly fortunate to have been part of such a great scheme, and we’re really looking forward to planning and developing in the beautiful town of Appleby.
We’ll be posting regular updates on our progress so keep coming back!
