Three ways to Donate to your New Cherry Hinton Hub!
If you want to pay by card the best way at present is to go to our Just Giving Page. It would be really nice if you could also add Gift Aid.
An alternative is to use internet banking to transfer direct to our Community Benefit Society Bank account. Please email us to request bank details. Thank you.

Why do we need to raise £50,000 towards the cost of the project?
At the early stages of discussion about the funding of the Hub, Cherry Hinton Residents Association agreed to raise £50k towards the total cost from the community to demonstrate commitment. It was further agreed that the £50k would be used for fitting out the cafe kitchen. The total cost of the project is around £1.6 million and this is coming mainly from the City Council and some from S106 money.
Now that we have a timeline for construction we can begin fundraising in earnest. We need your help or we won’t get our much needed cafe!
Funds are raised by The Cherry Hinton Community Benefit Society (CHCBS) and will be used primarily for the completion and running of the Cherry Branch cafe at the Hub. CHCBS is a Co-operative with charity status regulated by the FCA. Registered number 8095. It is a member of Co-operatives UK.
