Charlbury Community Centre is a not-for-profit organisation, which relies on income from renting out its space and from fundraising, grants and donations. In order to be open as long as possible and offer as many services as possible we rely on some volunteer work. If you can offer anything from manning the counter for a few hours a week to offering training sessions, helping with youth clubs, chatting to elderly people etc we would be delighted to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org
The library is also partly staffed by volunteers and extra people to go on this rota just once or twice a month, would be very welcome. Please contact Rosalind Scott if you may be able to help: Rosalind.email@example.com, or for further details follow the links on the library page.
In order to meet our running costs and to keep our prices as low as possible, we will also have to continue to do some fundraising in the community. For example we run a monthly quiz night (on the fourth Wednesday of every month) and we like to have a different quiz master each time. If you can help with this or other fundraising please contact Tanya at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Regular donations are especially valuable to us, so we have set up a “Friends of Charlbury Community Centre” scheme. Regular donors will be entitled to have their name on a list of donors on the display screen in the lobby. Please click here to find out how to donate.
If you would like make a one-off donation to the Charlbury Community Centre, you can do so through Golden Giving. We are very grateful for any support however large or small.
We are very grateful to Pareto, one of our neighbours at the Spendlove centre who are kindly sponsoring our Christmas tree this year. We always have a big one outside the front door and this year it's needed more than ever! Many thanks also to Halcyon Farm, who significantly subsidise the cost of the tree.
This year the Charlbury Community Centre has employed a team of young people, who have undertaken lots of different projects around the town, from building raised beds in people's gardens, to facilitating outdoor and indoor virtual coffee club get-togethers for seniors, and helping with activities for children. This would not have been possible without the financial support of WODC (Community Activities Grant), PF Charitable Trust and local donors. Thank you all very much!
The phone number is 01608 811878 and it is manned 9am-5pm seven days a week. You can ring us for practical help, shopping etc. We have a big team of volunteers who can help you.
