The fundraising clock is ticking to convert the old toilet block in the centre of town and repair the amazing Singers Links glass blocks.
One of several ideas for the building conversion in Frome town centre

Can you help? We are looking for both funding and expertise to enable the project to be completed. We have set the clock for fundraising to stop on 30th April and if we don't get ALL the pledges of funding by then then we fail to get ANY of the pledges, so no pressure!!
Please take a look at our target, what we aim to do and what skills and funding we need on the fundraising site HERE. Please pledge a small amount (or a large one!) to the project and you will contribute to a thriving town centre.
Many of our creative industries are working away in remote locations in Frome & this project will give them the chance to showcase their work in this great central location. The main aim of the project, however, is to restore the damaged & neglected glass blocks made by local glass artist Helga Watkins-Baker. You don't know what they are? Check out this article & these photos.
TOTALS TO DATE: We have raised £3,682 and need further pledges of £7,273 by today, 1st Feb. Please spread the word to anyone you know who might think this is a worthy project.
