ONE thousand pounds closer but still £70,000 to go!
That was the appeal today from the Bramford Road New Community Centre Project after giving thanks to the Ipswich and Norwich Co-operative Society for its £1,000 gift.
Co-op president, Beryl Fulcher went along to Bramford Road Methodist Church in Ipswich to see some of the young pre-school kiddies who will be among those benefiting from the new centre and handed over £1,000 to the fund.
Altogether the project needed £500,000 for the new community centre which will boast a sports hall, learning resource facilities and meeting and function rooms.
The centre will be for all ages but particularly for young people who live in the area.
Ipswich Borough Council gave the project £100,000 and with other generous donations £435,000 has been received.
