is about doing something
Carlton community hub
Our Carlton Community Hub is in the former Carlton Methodist Church, long-term home for our Carlton Foodbank. Having taken on the tenancy in October 2021 following the closure of the Church, the volunteer team has grown from strength to strength under the direction and support of our Development Manager, Michael Singh, a Carlton resident himself, pictured (second left) with some of our Carlton Volunteer team.
In November 2023, the Hub was awarded Runner Up in the Pride of Gedling 'Outstanding Community Project' - a real testimony to the work of our volunteers, staff, partners, supporters, and of course the wonderful guests we welcome across the week.
The Carlton Community Hub project is a significant financial investment for Hope Nottingham. Donate here to support the Hub's work and future development.
