When this appeal was first launched in November 2010 the thought of raising a million pounds plus seemed an impossible goal. Then whizz forward 9 years  later and we are now open! An incredible achievement.


However there is still much to be done, fundraising will continue, both to ensure we have enough to complete this final stage of a second floor and for the Centre's ongoing survival in serving the community of Barnet.
