Breaking News: Toxteth Food Central Fire Recovery Fund
On Sunday 11th October we experienced a setback on our food hub building project. A fire destroyed the timber frame construction on Windsor Street, half-way through the build.
We have been overwhelmed by the response of the local and wider community who have sent messages of support and offered us their help. Thank you all so much.
The Toxteth Food Central team are committed to completing their plans for a dynamic community cafe, affordable food store, garden and training kitchen in the heart of L8. The process of rebuilding has already begun. The site has been made safe and investigations into the cause of the fire have started. The damaged timber will be removed and building will be resumed.
We have launched a crowd-funder in response to offers of financial support. We’ll be posting updates here, and on facebook and twitter – turn up with fruit or cake at John Archer Hall if you want to offer moral support!!!
