The Arthur Wharton Foundation building requires an extensive refurbishment, both inside and out. Literally everything requires work, in some shape or form - to meet the required; health, safety and accessibility standards. Some of the refurbishment has already started, but there is still so much more to be done.

Any contribution would be so gratefully received. Alongside a dedicated bunch of supporters / helpers, the Foundation will access local tradespeople to help us make the foundation building a place local people can be proud of and make it the beating heart of the local community.

A place where we can; inform, educate and inspire.

A place where we can celebrate Arthur Wharton and his remarkable achievements.

A place where we can, "Connect the Present to the Past, for the Future"

It's going to take a lot of; time, money and effort to get the building to what we need it to be. But one thing that's guaranteed, is that those of us supporting the Foundation - will do everything we can to make this vision a reality.
