Heat Our Hall!
URGENT: The ancient heating system at Mornington Hall has broken. We need to raise £15k to replace it and keep our beautiful venue and theatre group alive! Please donate to our emergency 'Heat Our Hall' campaign. Find out more from our Chair, Jacky Logan, below.
Can you help save your local community venue?
The ancient heating system at Mornington Hall has disintegrated and cannot be repaired. If we do not raise the funds for a replacement, this wonderful venue may have to close its doors for good.
Mornington Hall operates at the heart of the Chingford community. It provides childcare, fitness classes, baby sensory, life drawing and many other valuable community activities.
It is also home to much-loved theatre group CADOS, who have kept local people entertained for over 75 years.
We lease Mornington Hall from the council and manage it on a voluntary basis. In recent years, we have invested over £12k to grow the hall as a community arts venue and theatre.
But we now face the most difficult and sudden challenge, which threatens the future of Mornington Hall and CADOS itself.
We urgently need to raise £15k to install a replacement heating system. We cannot get through the winter without it.
If Mornington Hall closes, many activities which enhance the health and wellbeing of local people could be left out in the cold. But with your support, we can keep our beautiful venue open for all to enjoy.
