The contractors have just completed the first phase of the build and the steel structure can be clearly seen by passers by.

"We are poised and ready to launch our ambitious fundraising campaign after Christmas. The new fundraising manager will highlight the benefits of philanthropic giving to potential donors and we are confident that we will achieve our goal.

"While some businesses, organisations and charitable trusts may be in a position to make six figure donations, we know many firms and individual benefactors will want to make smaller, yet equally important, gifts. We are keen to recognise the generosity of all donors and will be looking at a range of ways of doing this."
