Bid to save Trowbridge Town Hall by Trowbridge Chamber of Commerce

The newly invigorated Trowbridge Chamber of Commerce representing Trowbridge Businesses is creating an event to help raise funds for Trowbridge Town Hall. Town Hall Arts has until the end of June 2018 to raise a minimum of £35000 or close down forever at the end of July. They have set up a  Local Giving Page for their 130 Challenge https://localgiving.org/fundraising/130challenge/

On 24th June 2018 at 1.30pm Trowbridge business owners/art groups or individuals will be getting together to do a 10k walk around the town collecting donations along the way. There will be a 5K walk for any who can’t manage the full 10K.

The challenge is to find 130 business people or interested individuals to raise a minimum of £130 each, do the walk and take part in their arty Instagram challenge along the way.

“We don't want to see the closure of this brilliant town centre facility and wish to do our bit in any way we can. Please support your Town Centre, make a donation and come to support us on the 24th June.” Natasha Owen – Trowbridge Chamber of Commerce

They aim to raise at least £16900.00

Pop in and ask Town Hall Arts staff for details on how to walk, donate, marshal, grab a sponsorship pack or otherwise get involved. Or email us on info@townhallarts.co.uk

“We are so grateful for the support of local business and concerned individuals who have been very generous in their support, giving time, encouragement, and donations to show they are behind our efforts to raise the money we need. I am so proud of the team of staff and volunteers here who are staying positive and finding solutions at this challenging time” Philippa Edwards Manager – Town Hall Arts.
