Kirkstall-based TCV Hollybush is raising money to create additional and more accessible toilets, writes Keely Bannister.
The new toilets will be located in the conservation charity’s Grade II-listed barn.
By placing the toilets here, TCV Hollybush say they will be able to make the most of the barn. The work would increase light and reduce draughts, meaning it can be used all-year round.
The charity said the development will benefit the community:
“TCV Hollybush will remain “a safe and welcoming, inclusive space” and improvements will allow us to make more flexible use of the site for additional late afternoon, evening and weekend activities.
“This will enable us to work more with young people and training projects, host more evening events and make the space available for hire. By broadening our community base and contributing to regular unrestricted income we can take Hollybush forward into the next decade.”
Hollybush – which works with different sections of the community to improve people’s health as well as enhancing local greenspace – is currently celebrating its 40th year having been founded in 1979 on a derelict farmhouse.
