How You Can Support Us

Thank you so much for helping us to get from a fledgling community group, to a charity, to where we are now, a busy, vibrant and valued part of our community.

We are very grateful to Long Buckby Parish Council who have agreed to pay for the annual lease costs but we have to finance all other costs to remain open. These include, for example, newspapers, heat and light, insurance, wifi and website costs, cleaning, training and so on. We also want to continually expand the activities we offer and encourage more visitors from surrounding parishes.

To do so we need assistance above and beyond the support we get from everyone who buys a coffee, book, film ticket or uses our photocopier etc. As you might imagine these are not high earners, super important though they of course are.
