Fundraising

Rowheath Pavilion is consistently looking for new funders to help keep our building busy and functioning.

OUR FUTURE IS IN YOUR HANDS- LIFE AND PLAY PROJECT

HELP US REDEVELOP ROWHEATH CAFÉ!

Originally built in 1924, under the instructions of George Cadbury, Rowheath Pavilion was part of his vision for Cadbury workers and their families to have opportunities to engage in sports and leisure pursuits.

Today, Rowheath Pavilion is once more a vibrant, local cultural and social community venue with its playing fields and sports pitches, function rooms and café now open all day, every day, hosting; weddings, parties, concerts, community events, monthly farmers markets and year-round clubs and classes.

Trinity Christian Centre (TCC), the charity who manage the building and park, strongly believe that providing leisure and sports facilities at the heart of the community, actively promotes rejuvenation of community values and benefits everyone. Both Bournville Village Trust and Birmingham City Council recognise the importance of Rowheath Pavilion’s role in the community of South Birmingham, and have already given significant support to the project.

In order to secure its long term future the 88 year old building and sports facilities are in desperate need of modernisation. TCC in partnership with Bournville Village Trust have invested in plans to raise funds for the work needed. Planning permission was granted in June 2013 for new sports changing facilities and a new café/bar annexe.

Fund raising for the changing facilities is underway with support from Sport England and The Football Association. TCC are now focusing on raising the £480,000 needed to create the new café and bar annexe. In the coming months the charity will be hosting a range of exciting events to launch the Rowheath Pavilion: Life and play Project.

One of these events is a Rip Roaring Twenties evening on Saturday 19th October 2013, in a nod to the silent movie era we will be having a silent auction. We would be extremely grateful if you could donate a prize for this event. In return we will list all donations on the project webpage and at the event.
