Blunkett helps to launch lift

Have your say

CELEBRATIONS are taking place at a Sheffield community centre to mark the installation of a new lift.

Brightside and Hillsborough MP David Blunkett will join users and staff at the Burton Street Foundation centre, Hillsborough, to mark the occasion on Wednesday.

The project has been funded by the foundation, which raised around £3,000 at its 2012 Christmas Craft Fair, and a grant of £19,750 awarded by The Veolia Environmental Trust through the Landfill Communities Fund.

Dave Clarson, managing director of the Burton Street Foundation, said: “This smoother, more reliable and spacious lift will revitalise our service provision to the local community and will mean more people can take part in events and access services at our centre.”
