A BOGNOR REGIS-based charity is in a race against time to raise more than £2,000 to create a new facility.
4Sight Vision Support has launched a crowdfunding page to convert an old indoor swimming pool at its Victoria Drive premises into a large communal space for visually impaired people.
Raising £2,355 on Spacehive.com as SPACE4SIGHT by August 31 will unlock a £15,000 pledge from a funder as part of the £18,000 given to date. Failing to meet the target will see the pledge disappear.
A spokesman said: “4Sight Vision Support currently does not have a large room in their Bognor Regis support centre that can comfortably and safely cater for large groups of people. This puts a limit on what clubs and activities can be offered at the main centre, which 4Sight Vision Support aims to make more accessible and inclusive for social events and activities.”
The new room is set to be used for group work, meetings, tai chi, social clubs and therapies.
The multi-purpose function room will benefit the other groups based in the Bradbury Centre as well as 4Sight Vision Support.
