Gregson Community Association Lend a Hand Survey

The Gregson Community Association Trustees are really keen to make sure we are supporting our communities during the crisis. Up until now, we have been dealing with a lot of issues that the ‘lockdown’ has presented including the temporary closure of the building. We have also been having conversations with local organisations to see how we can support efforts across the area. We are very keen to hear from everyone in the area to find out what we can help with and what we can offer.

Please complete this short survey. It will take two minutes.  This will help us plan local action and bring together volunteers.

Covid-19 : Gregson Centre closure

April 2020

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the GregsonCentre is currently closed.

We aim to reopen the Centre as soon as possible, but the date is out of our hands at present.
We are looking at what we can do to best support the local community at this time.

If you wish to contact us please email us using the details on the "Contact Us" page.

Covid-19 : Donations to the Gregson Community Association

Regular supporters of the Gregson Community Association have suggested that we put a "Donate" button on here so that those that wish can assist us financially during this difficult time.

Donations made here will go directly to the GCA and assist us with our financial commitments. Although the Gregson Centre is currently closed, we do still have bills to pay. This is having a huge impact on our meager financial reserves.

Please use the button below if you feel able to contribute.

All contributions are gratefully received.
