Trustees at the Princes Centre have been celebrating the news of a £5,000 grant towards the new heating system which was recently completed.

The cash has come from Heart of Bucks (formerly known as Buckinghamshire Community Foundation) and the trustees and other volunteers who work tirelessly towards providing a building which is fit for purpose for the clients are grateful for the support.

The centre in Princes Risborough had also suffered a problem with part of the roof due to the recent high winds but this has been rectified. The renovation of the patio area is in progress and it is hoped a grant to replace the bus will be made by Wycombe District Council, with news on this expected in February.

Staff will be holding another quiz and bingo evening on Friday, April 8, doors opening at 7pm. The cost is £10 and includes a meal. Call Kim to book a table for up to 8 to take part.

The Tesco collection, held in December, raised nearly £700.00 which, with gift aid, will be 25% higher. Donations have been received from Monks Risborough Parochial Charity, Princes Risborough Charity, the Owlswick Carol Service at St Dunstan’s, Longwick Evening Women’s Institute, TSB Bank, Black Dog Band and Banjovi Revival, and many others.

Funds will help towards the reroofing of the learning and development area and internal restructuring, required to accommodate an internal wheelchair lift.
