Support The Old Fire Station!

Why we need your help

We’re raising money to keep The Old Fire Station in Gipton, East Leeds, serving the local community!

Due to Covid-19 we are no longer able to offer room hire; one of our key sources of income to cover the costs of running and maintaining the building.

We need your help to be able to continue to thrive and support the local community after the current crisis ends.

The Old Fire Station Gipton is a community hub striving to be:

• A space where local people can come to socialise, access support, relax and have fun. A place where children and young people, adults and older people come to maximise their potential, improve their wellbeing and their quality of life- all under one roof.

• An amazing venue where a range of different and complementary not-for-profit tenant organisations can come together to provide services, support, advice and information.  It’s a place where the “whole” is so much greater than the sum of the parts.

The Old Fire Station opened in September 2017 – with a café open to the public, rooms for the whole community to hire, a cookery school and offices for charities -  a safe and welcoming space for all.

Since 2017 we have been able to work with the local community to create the events and activities they would like - car boot sales, a cinema night and annual community days such as a Christmas Fair and summer Fire Engine Day.

Our main aim is to ensure that The Old Fire Station is thriving, welcoming centre in East Leeds where all are made to feel valued and safe whilst providing the opportunity to learn, develop and engage in positive activities. 

We are entirely self supporting so need your help to be able to continue to thrive and support the local community.

Please give what you can!
