This September Bridges charity celebrate our 40th Anniversary. We are undertaking a years worth of fundraising events beginning with a very special gala dinner cooked by celebrity chef Cyrus Todiwala OBE.

Bridges have set a fundraising target of £40,000 to help with the ongoing maintenance of historic Drybridge House, your community centres wonderful home for the last 21 years.

The Joint Chairs of Trustees, Ann Rosser and Mark Walton, commented, “There was a tremendous fund-raising initiative from the local community when Bridges restored and moved into Drybridge House in 2003. We hope that the community will be able to join forces once again to help sustain its future”.
