In 2012, with your support, we won a long costly legal battle to stay in our home at 576 Harrow Road and continue our good works for the community. The landlords were ordered by the court to carry out extensive external repairs, including replacing all the windows in the building and importantly drafting a new lease for us. They have since breached the court order.
Without a written lease, as a registered charity (Charity Reg No. 281810) we cannot apply for much needed funding to help us continue our good works and improvements in the gym, so we are forced to go back to the courts to force the external repairs to be carried out, which they have not done and get our new lease in place.
We need your help. We need your support in raising the money, with donations, fundraising etc. We need volunteers to help us organise and assist with fundraising events.
Rallying in support of our fundraising efforts, a KO Circuit member, Ruth, has organised an amazing charity fundraising gig at All Stars gym, with the amazing artist A Guy Called Gerald, The Correspondents, Skinny Girl Diet & DJ Sugarlump Power giving their time and talents for free.
