The Mayfair Family Club in Louth is at risk of closing down if it is unable to raise enough money to replace the current fire doors – which do not meet the required regulations, according to health and safety officials.
The volunteer-run social club, which is based in Birch Road, helps the disabled community in our area. The not-for-profit organisation is aimed at integrating mentally and physically disabled people into the wider community, and provides an invaluable facility to many local care homes and individuals throughout Lincolnshire.
In an open letter from Steve Mathews, the Chairman of the Trustees, he appeals to local businesses and individuals to do what they can to support the much-loved club.
Mr Mathews said: “We are writing to you in our hour of need in the hope that you may be able to help us.
“Following a recent inspection we have been informed that our fire doors do not meet current regulations, and must be replaced urgently or we will be forced to close.
“As a result, we are working hard to raise £2,500 to cover these costs and we are hoping local businesses may be kind enough to help towards this cost in the form of a cash or prize donation, or by raising funds on our behalf.”
If you can offer support to the Mayfair Club, call 07961 739185.
l To raise additional funds, a rock and roll charity night will take place at the Mayfair Club on Sunday May 29.
The Tailfins will be giving a free performance on the night, and there will be an auction and a raffle. Doors open at 6.30pm, and entry costs £5 for adults (£3 for children).
