Kensington Community Learning Centre celebrations

Wendy, Liam, Luciana and I joined local people, businesses and supportive organisations at a celebration of a Big Lottery Fund grant being awarded to the Kensington Community Learning Centre

The grant which has saved the centre from closure, it having previously been subsidised in part by Kensington Regeneration, will enable the centre to continue to provide training, in particular with IT skills, new skills like community use of Ebay, developing volunteering and community radio training – and other stuff I have forgotten but which Alan Tapp will undoubtedly advise us of when he sees that I am struggling a bit.

This valuable resource, which houses also the best UKonline centre in the country, is very important to Kensington and we are delighted with the good news.

It was particularly touching to hear one adult learner ask for quiet so that he could thank the staff at the centre for changing the lives of people like him.

Well done to everyone and well done to the Big Lottery Fund for their vision!
