Fundraising

Although much of the cost of the new Village Centre has been met by grants from a variety of sources, including the Big Lottery, the Dersingham Village Centre Association are still raising funds to equip the new hall with all the essentials of a modern community building. You can help, by joining our Village Centre Lottery or, of course, you can just make a donation. Whichever way you choose, your generosity is much appreciated and will enhance the experience of all the eventual users of the Village Centre.
