A community centre is hoping to secure funding to go towards making vital improvements.

Sandycroft Community Centre, near Queensferry, requires urgent refurbishments both inside and out.

Sue Salisbury, trustee and treasurer at Sandycroft Community Centre, said: “We’ve been trying to secure grants for years, but we keep getting rejected.

“The building is around 40-years-old now, it’s outdated and needs a lot of work done to it. The biggest issue, though, are the toilets which both require proper refurbishing, and our best quote so far is for around £20,000.

“We may have to add our own money and hold fundraisers to raise the kind of amount we need, but the ASDA ‘Green Token Giving’ scheme can help us towards that.”

Councillor Keith Garrett, chairman of the Sandycroft Community Centre, adds: "It is a real struggle to keep going at a time when so many community centres are closing down. But it's important to try and keep that community spirit going."

Voting at the ASDA store in Queensferry runs until Sunday, June 30. The nominee with the most votes will be handed £500 from the ASDA Foundation, while the two charitable runner-up organisations will receive £200 each.
