Fitzherbert Community Hub is home to the Catholic Parish of East Brighton and three community projects based in the heart of Brighton's Kemptown: Brighton Table Tennis Club, The Real Junk Food Project Brighton, and Voices in Exile.
The Hub is situated in a run-down, under-used church hall at St John the Baptist church which is now being rebuilt and refurbished to create an eco-friendly community centre that will welcome everyone in the neighbourhood. The funding for the building work has already been secured but funding for kitchen equipment, tables, chairs, crockery and cutlery is needed to make the community space safe and inviting for everyone.
Once the space is complete, important community support can be offered such as foodbanks, cooking classes, pay as you feel meals, exercise classes, and ongoing support to refugees in the community.
The Fitzherbert Community Hub has launched a Crowdfunder in the hope of raising £100,000 for the community space refurbishment. If they achieve their target, donations will be matched by grant bodies, doubling the contributions. The Hub have already raised most of their target with thanks to all their generous supporters.
You can track their progress live and make a contribution by visiting their Crowdfunder page here.
