Priory Rotary Club in King’s Lynn has donated £500 to the Gaywood Community Bungalow Project.
The project is being spearheaded by the Rev Julie Boyd, Rector of St Faith’s Church, and her husband Matthew.
They hope to raise £125,000 to convert a bungalow between the church and church hall into a community facility with a café, meeting room and office.
One of the main users of the building will be West Norfolk Mind which is to offer drop-in facilities for young people aged 17 to 25.
The project was kick started in the summer with a sponsored motor motorbike ride from King’s Lynn to Inverness and back by the Boyds, which raised £15,000. Contributions from the Diocese of Norwich of £25,000 and other donations from local businesses are helping the project towards the point where work can start, a club spokesman said.
Mr Boyd spoke to the Priory members about the project and president Robert Jones said the club was pleased to make a small contribution towards a facility which would offer valuable facilities for the community and help to support those with mental illnesses.
