Plans for MC Centre Tondu delayed
Plans for one of the UKs biggest community centres set up to stamp out poverty and social exclusion in South Wales has been delayed.
After a 2 year search for the right property and 6 years planning for the main MC Centre for the County of Bridgend, one year ago the directors of Mulligan Community started making plans to purchase the former ironworks at Tondu, a year later their plans have been delayed due to a major grant programme being cancelled in March.
Mulligan Community already have the MC Centre Bridgend open in Bridgend Industrial Estate, but they are fast growing out of the 4,000 sq. ft. and need to extend to bigger premises to make room for all the businesses on their waiting list for cheap office space and to provide more cheap training rooms and extend their Help Hub and Family Hub facilities.
'Mulligan is committed to Parc Tondu and we are now looking to fund the purchase ourselves and through donations from businesses and the community' said director Amanda Kirk.
If you would like to leave your mark in helping to stamp out poverty and social exclusion in South Wales, by getting to the root of the issues that cause them -
by providing free counselling and support groups for all issues, disabled clubs, play rooms, family contact rooms and many many more services for everyone in over 11 acres of the beautiful historic Tondu Ironworks.
Victorian ironworks could become one of the UK's biggest community centres
But the social enterprise behind the plan must raise £500,000 first

In October 2016 we held two announcement events, one for Service Providers (sponsored by CSB) and one for the Community. They were a huge success with over 200 people attending.
The events announced where the MC Centre was based and when it would be open, we shared our plans and made promising networking connections for the future.
The main prize for our raffle in the Community Announcement Event was a Cybershot Digital Still W810 Compact Camera, which was sponsored by Sony, Bridgend and was won by Mr Paul Watson.
