There is also a programme of regularly monthly fundraising events as well as special events and activities throughout the year.

We are seeking a person with experience of managing in a hospitality or event management role to manage the work of the Centre, working with a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers, planning and organising events and overseeing operations and delivery of services.
