Donate to the Old Library Campaign



We are excited to announce that Englefield Charitable Trust has awarded £10,000 in match funding, via the Good Exchange, towards the Old Library campaign to create a new arts hub in Newbury.

With support from Greenham Trust, this historic building will become a permanent home to our creative participation work, which provides a lifeline to many local people: reducing social isolation and loneliness within our community; improving mental health locally; and supporting young people in building confidence and self-esteem.

The match funding appeal will go live on Monday 6 May, and every donation made through the Good Exchange will be matched pound for pound (up to £10,000) by Englefield Charitable Trust – so a donation of £25 means £50 for the Old Library campaign!

Can you help transform lives through the arts?

We are asking you and everyone we know to support our campaign, and if you make a gift today your donation will be doubled. We have already raised 60% of our fundraising target but still need your support to reach our goal.
