Centre needs help from its supporters

CALLING all former pupils, staff and supporters of the Linskill Centre in North Shields, formerly Linskill School.

We will be hosting a Grand Charity Auction and a Beer and Curry Evening at the Linskill Centre on Saturday, October 15, in aid of the Linskill Centre Window Appeal.

Please come and support us on the night, tickets are £5 each and include a curry and rice supper.

The window appeal hopes to raise funds to replace 20 of the original 80-year-old steel framed windows which are draughty, leak, do not open and seriously increases heat loss from the hall.

They now require costly ongoing repairs and we have decided to raise funds to replace them before the onset of winter.

The hall is in constant use and replacement windows would benefit all of the centre’s users.

Our target is £10,000 and so far we have raised £5,677.

Hopefully with the public’s generous help we will be able to further enhance our window fund.
