Donors 2013 – 16


It took 4 years to raise over the £240,000 required to build our new community building, thanks to the work of a committed group of local volunteers and the financial and other support given by a wide range of donors and local business supporters.

We are very grateful for the many donations we received during this, our construction phase, from those made locally in our collecting tins to the large number of individual donations from a wide range of organisations.

We would like to thank our key donors for their significant donations:

  • Kirklees Council, Denby Dale Area Committee and Denby Dale Parish Council
  • A number of charitable trusts: Garfield Weston Foundation, Cheridan Raithby, Huddersfield Common Good and Sir George Martin
  • Local businesses Nisa, Yorkshire’s Finest who chose us as the nominated charity at their 2015 charity ball and the Emley Players who have donated their time to run several Murder Mystery evenings for us.


We are lucky to live in a supportive and proactive local business community. This long list of individuals and businesses helped us during our construction phase, by donating their expertise and/or materials, either at reduced rates or  free of charge.  We thank them all!

First of all we have received valuable advice and support from these professional advisers:
