New toilet block opens at TCV Hollybush following £100,000 appeal

More than 60 volunteers and supporters cheered the opening of a new accessible toilet block at TCV Hollybush Conservation Centre in Kirkstall.

Jon Towler, Chair of The Conservation Volunteers, assisted by Richard and Ann from the Hollybush Project, declared the new toilet block open as part of a gathering to mark the conclusion of national Volunteers Week.

Assistant director for Yorkshire Caroline Crossley said: “On our busy site this will be a very welcome facility for those with limited mobility especially people who use walking frames or wheelchairs, we are truly grateful to all our funders.

“A big thanks to everyone, to our architect and project manager Mark Larham of Airedale Architects and Five Rise Contractors. We now have some smart toilets in a lovely timber framed building with a green roof.”

Almost £100,000 has been raised to fund the construction of the detached three-cubicle toilet block, which has an additional hand wash area as an essential facility.

This comprises over £8,000 in individual donations, £75,000 from Veolia Environmental Trust (Landfill Communities Fund) matched by Leeds City Council’s Inner West Community Committee, ASDA Green Tokens,Liz and Terry Bramall Charitable Trust, Charles Brotherton Trust, Arnold Burton 1998 Charitable Trust, RE Chadwick Charitable Trust, Beatrice Laing Trust, Sir George Martin Trust, Charles and Elsie Sykes Trust, and Wades Charity.

TCV Hollybush, which is a busy environmental volunteering centre and the increasing number of volunteers, many with mobility needs.
