A CENTRE which offers a huge variety of events and facilities is in the money.
Hartlepool Peoples Centre has received a £480 boost thanks to donations made by the audience at last month’s Hartlepool Business Awards. The donation was doubled when town branch of Barclays Bank matched the amount, meaning the People Centre received £960. Lin Craddy, project manager at the Peoples Centre, in Raby Road, said: “This is a fantastic boost and it will be put towards our core costs. That is the hardest thing of all to fund.” Activities in the centre include smoking cessation sessions, sewing, art, drama and dance, table tennis, out of school hours club, and IT sessions. Lin added: “We do have lots of different groups here and we are always willing to welcome more.” For more details, contact (01429) 861144.
