As many of you know, we had a fire at The Foxton Centre early in March which did extensive damage to the main hall, and indirect damage (smoke & water) to the rest of the building. This damage forced us to find alternate locations for all of our Centre-based projects (such as the Community Café, ATR, Fox Kidz, & Fox ChiXx) and significantly reduced the services we have been able to offer.
“The stories that you hear just makes you realise how much some of the guys have gone through. The trust that you build with people doing the hands on is brilliant. You can see change happening in front of your own eyes.” Volunteer
Many people have been asking where we are up to & how it is going at The Foxton Centre, so we wanted to give you all an update.
Avenham Park, Preston
21.04.14 Easter Monday
Up and running!
We are delighted to be able to say that we will be able to run some of our services starting today!
The Community Cafe will run from 12.00 – 2.00pm from the Unity Centre in Shepherd Street, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until further notice.
On Sunday night, the local fire brigade were called to The Foxton Centre to fight a fire that was already raging. Fortunately they came in time to save our building from what appears to be a deliberately started fire.
The Foxton Centre will be hosting it’s first ever “Bouce-a-thon” in March.
