The Exeter street hall team are appealing for you to help them raise a £50 000 grant for the repair of their roof.
By calling a number tonight you can help the Exeter street hall team raise the money they need to keep the hall the vibrant community hub that it is.
The people’s millions would fund the project, and is a partnership between Itv and Big Lottery Fund, where the public help decide which public community projects get funding.
The story of the Exeter street hall is a remarkable one, after originally being sold to an anonymous bidder living in Newhaven, local residents set up a vociferous campaign to buy it and keep it in the community.
After successfully buying the community centre back, it now needs repairing, and the leaky, creaky 136 year-old roof is the most obvious feature in need of repair.
The team are aiming for 20 000 votes, and tonight (25th November) will be when the number to call is released to the public, when their bid is featured on ITV’s Meridian Tonight.
The hall is an inclusive space where everyone is welcome, with a strong focus on community cohesion and the transformation of everyday lives, but the team need you to make it the best it can be.
