Roof Our Education Unit
It is estimated that we will need £4,500 to replace the slates on the roof of our education unit. The current roof is not appropriate for a low pitch roof and driving rains off Holcolme Hill.
Any help via donation will be greatly appreciated or buy raffle tickets for a chance to win Swarovski crystal jewellery as donated by https://www.clearcrystal.
Naturally Enterprising is an initiative that combines enterprise training and personal development with the natural environment. Our purpose is to build capacity and develop confidence for those in need and we do this by encouraging individuals to access the many benefits of nature whilst contributing to the development of local community green spaces.
We have had several years of successful experiences working with women-only groups. In the last 3 years, we have delivered programmes to 52 women in groups of 6 all of whom were NEET/disadvantaged, experienced poor mental health or low self-esteem/confidence, and half of were in the 16-24 age bracket.
The Enterprise Centre has participated in two Erasmus projects in recent times. They have worked with social enterprise and university partners in diverse countries such as Germany, Spain, Lithuania, Portugal, Cyprus and Turkey, working on projects to develop collaborative approaches to the marketing and online support of social enterprises and non-profit organisations. The projects helped share expertise and experience, and promote the activities of The Enterprise Centre to a broad network of European partners and those links remain in place today. The Enterprise Centre still has hopes to work within transnational partnerships and projects in the future.
The Enterprise Centre now has 3 bespoke training rooms a donation café and the stables built to house our lovely ponies.
We are currently undertaking some massive repairs to our Secret Garden, which has been funded by Veolia Environmental Trust and we hope to reopen to the public in summer 2021.
We are also doing a crowd funder with Aviva to raise funds to make the community garden and lodge pathways more accessible and a stop off as residents take a walk along The Kirklees Valley Trail. You can now see us on the Maps which are scattered across the Trail.
