The Dauntsey Lock Canal Centre needs your support.

WBCT have been selected to go forward into the voting phase of the Aviva Community Fund awards this year.

We are developing a new base, the Dauntsey Lock Canal Centre, behind the Peterborough Arms at Dauntsey Lock for our Transitions Project and for community use, and this will allow the Peterborough Arms to open shortly as a commercial pub.

Planning permission and funding for the buildings are well in hand.DLCC 2

We now need to raise funds to purchase equipment for our new community and training rooms at the Canal Centre: we need art and craft materials, IT equipment, gardening tools, carpentry tools, materials to make raised vegetable beds, tables and chairs, a kettle, tea cups... you name it, we need it!

Please vote for us by following the link, registering and voting: you have 10 votes to use - all for us if you would like!DLCC

The more support we get, the better our chances of securing funding for our project

Remember to spread the word by sharing our project to your family friends and colleagues – everyone you tell can cast 10 votes, which they can spread between different projects or just one, as they choose.

Voting ends 21 November - Please vote now!Aviva logo
