G H & L 500 SUPPORTERS

Grassington Hub is a giving organisation with little opportunity to generate the funds to keep it moving forward.

Every year we have a shortfall in funds of around £25,000.  In the past, this shortfall has been covered by a BIG Lottery grant, and the Hub’s other reserves.  Our reserves are now very low and, although we are actively applying for grants to cover specific projects and core funding, we are also asking for your further support to help keep our community library open, and all of our other community services going.

We are now looking for 500 people, who believe in what the Hub offers to our community, to pledge a regular monthly donation to keep us in business.

As a ‘G H & L 500’ supporter, you will help build our ‘£25,000 book tower’ each year.  Our ‘G H & L 500’ tower of wooden books, situated just outside the Hub, will let everyone see how close we are to reaching our annual funding target.

You will receive a regular quarterly email newsletter all about the Hub’s current activities, latest achievements, future plans and, of course, how close we are to reaching our annual funding target.  And, if you are happy for us to do so, we’ll put your name, with a big THANK YOU, on our supporters list in the Hub.

G H & L 500 SUPPORTERS

 By choosing to make a regular donation you will be helping us plan ahead, and be supporting our community services and activities.

You can make a regular monthly donation of £5, £10 or £20.

£5 a month (£60 a year) will pay our Business Rates for one month.

£10 a month (£120 a year) will pay our heat and light for two months.

£20 a month (£240 a year) will pay for the room hire for our Lunch Club for 6 months

It’s easy to become a ‘G H & L 500’ supporter just complete one of our forms to set up a regular standing order payment to the Hub.

  • Complete one of our standing order forms, drop it in to the Hub,  and we will send it to your bank on your behalf; or,
  • Set up the standing order directly with your bank either through on-line banking, telephone banking, or in person at your local branch. (All the details you will need are on our downloadable standing order form).
