Save the Community Office!

We need to buy the building to continue supporting our rural community.

You can help.

We’re on our way to raising the £215,000 needed to purchase the building thanks to our fantastic network of volunteers, dedicated trustees and staff…but WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner has decided to co-locate fire and police estate requirements in Masham which means Mashamshire Community Office have the exciting opportunity to purchase the building from where we have operated for the past 20 years at 7 Little Market Place, Masham.

We need to buy the building so that we can continue the work we’ve done successfully in our rural community; supporting more than 80 community groups, 100 businesses, responding to over 10,000 visitor enquiries and 1000 resident enquiries each year.

Often when people don’t know where to turn, we are there to support them. We’re the glue that strengthens our community, keeping everyone connected.

Thanks for everything you do to keep our community connected and safe. You all do a wonderful job and it is really appreciated. People feel less isolated because of your care. Thank you so much.”

The jigsaw below represents how much we’ve raised to date, each piece is equivalent to £1,075. Help us finish the jigsaw so we can buy the building and keep supporting our community from the heart of Masham.
