We need £5000 to squeak through, and even more will be a fantastic bonus giving us a chance to invest in the plans.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Abbot House was a great idea 20 years ago, and it still is. It was a huge restoration project of a much loved building by the local community, and it is still run by the community.
Abbot House is a place of history and creativity, with school visits and children's activities, craft workshops, talks and heritage groups. It is a meet up place for local people, from the Dunfermline Dads to the Thursday knitters. We have around 60 volunteers, and support more than a dozen people re-entering the workplace, or needing a safe environment due to disabling conditions.
This little project is the bridge from the past into the future, and the 20th anniversary of its opening seems like a good moment to start. Our birthday programme is a mix of exhibitions, new works by young people, theatre, and children's activities - pretty much a year long street party.
We want a new lease of life for Abbot House. Your donation It will squeak us into the new season, and the rest, as they say, is history.
