‘The Unity Centre; Yoga, Wellbeing & The Arts’ has been accepted to open at the Turkish Baths in Lewes and we need your support to help it open!
Lewes District Council has backed the Residents petition and our proposal has been accepted to open at the iconic Turkish Baths, Lewes. More than 2,000 people in Lewes voted for the well-known building to be a community space for the town, rather than a chain or large restaurant.
Thanks to all of you!
With the Turkish Baths transformed into a not for profit organisation we can offer a welcoming and inclusive hub for families, individuals, children, teens, the elderly, carers and community groups; including marginalised groups to gather, connect and receive care and support.
We require additional funds to complete this inclusive not-for-profit Community Enterprise Project.
Refurbishment funds are needed to open this exciting, inclusive centre designed for the whole community!
We will feature:
- Flotation Tanks
The cost of the full refurbishment of the building is £80,000
Or if only half of us living in Lewes pledge £10 – we will hit our target!
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR VISION, BY SHARING & PLEDGE AS MUCH YOU ARE ABLE TO, THANKYOU
You can contribute to this exciting new project here.
Together, we can soon open the doors to a new holistic community centre for Lewes, for all ages, backgrounds and abilities!
Everyone is invited to come to our events and discover more about our plans. You can see all the details here.
Jo Carter, Green Councillor for Lewes, initiated the petition inspired by the recent loss of a particularly artistic area and a growing need for accessible community spaces.
“I’m really pleased that the Unity Centre for Yoga, Wellbeing and the Arts has got the lease for the historic Turkish Baths.
Hundreds of local people signed a petition I started that persuaded the council that this public building should be occupied by an organisation with ‘social and community’ value, not just another restaurant.
I think Unity ticks all the boxes: they are really committed to running a program that is open to all from young to old, and they have great plans to offer pain relief, support and therapy especially to those who are disabled or suffering from long-term illnesses.
I’m looking forward to seeing Unity bring the Turkish Baths back to life with yoga, martial arts, dance and something for everyone!”
– Jo Carter, Green Councillor for Lewes
