The Tunza Centre

Our promotional video starring Daniel & Olivia and of course Tunza the Lion – “The Tunza Centre….Taking Care of Your Dreams” !

The Tunza Centre is a Social Enterprise run and managed by our charity Tunza’s Pride. We first saw the building in the summer of 2011 and embarked on a two and a half year restoration project which involved engaging the support of key businesses, recruiting many volunteers to help and raising a significant amount of money to make to project happen. Through gifts, services, items being donated and the commitment of an army of supporters we managed to gain in excess of £200,000 worth of either funds or gifts in kind. The Tunza Centre truly is an example of how people in this community and beyond can work together and effectively produce something both remarkable and vitally required. We opened the doors for the first time in January 2014 and already since then we have hosted over 150 birthday parties, several family nights, themed evenings, 60 days of holiday clubs and is now home to several other voluntary groups and charities. The Tunza Centre works…..because we care enough about the people who benefit from our centre.

Some of our key supporters are highlighted on our Building for the Future Wall – thank you to each and every one of these companies and individuals who have made a significant contribution towards The Tunza Centre project.
