The JMWM Hussain Foundation have donated £100,000 to Accrington Stanley Community Trust to go towards the construction costs of the new Sports Hub at Higham Playing Fields.
Accrington Stanley Community Trust recently signed a 30-year lease on the site and construction work is now underway. The new facility will take approximately 6 months to construct and will become the new base for Accrington Stanley Community Trust, as well as providing state of the art sports and education facilities for many grassroots clubs, sports groups and local organisations.
Martin Fearon, CEO of Accrington Stanley Community Trust, said:
“This is a huge donation and we will be forever grateful to the JMWM Hussain Foundation for their support towards this community facility project. They can see the benefit that this facility will bring to the local community and were very keen to provide financial support to improve the area.’’
A spokesperson from the JMWM Hussain Foundation, commented:
‘’We are very pleased to be a part of this exciting community project’’.
