Featherston Community Centre is 100% Community Owned

Established in 1992, the Featherston Community Centre is owned by a trust on behalf of the community.

Please consider a weekly or monthly donation to the Centre

We provide reduced rent facilities and koha meeting options, so that everyone in the community can access support services and activities.
Rental fees cover half of our expenses, the remaining is sought in grants, donations and services in kind.

Please help us by making a tax-refundable donation on our GiveALittle page Featherston Community Centre – Givealittle or you can deposit a donation directly into our bank account: Featherston Community Centre, 03-0687-0014184-000 and help to look after the community in the future.
