  • Charles Burrell Centre Limited is a non-profit organisation with exempt charity status founded in 2015. Established as a community benefit society, the organisation is responsible for the running of Charles Burrell Centre based at Staniforth Road in Thetford, Norfolk. Having been left abandoned in 2013, the site was reopened by Thetford Town Council a year later following a campaign from local residents and a handful of dedicated councillors. The vision was to open a community and business centre to help support education, community groups and local business growth by letting the former classrooms and offices. With over 85,000 square feet of building space as well as playing fields and tennis courts, the centre is now home to over 40 organisations which include commercial businesses and local charities. In April 2015, the site was handed over to the newly formed Charles Burrell Centre Limited which is governed by non-executive board members that support a small handful of staff and volunteers that are responsible for the running of the centre.
    We have launched a campaign to raise money towards our match funding agreement with Big Lottery, Power to Change. We were awarded £112,500 last year to refurbish parts of the centre which will make all the difference to our present and future centre visitors. It will also allow for a substantial increase in our income which will enable CBC to continue to develop and benefit the local community. We have £37,500 to raise in total and so far we have raised around £14,500! This is really great and wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of our supporters.
    We are offering individuals, ex-pupils/teachers and businesses an opportunity to sponsor one or more of the CBC balcony chairs! In return for your sponsor we will place a plaque on your chosen chair(s) with text of your choosing – you might like to add your name, a business name or sponsor a chair in memory of a loved one. The cost to sponsor a chair will depend on which chair you choose and where it is positioned. The further forward you are the more expensive the chair is!

    There are lots of benefits to sponsoring one of our balcony chairs;

    • Supporting a local growing community business
    • Exposure & positive publicity
    • Making a difference to a thriving community hub benefiting Thetford & surrounding areas for many years to come
    • Your name/business will feature on a plaque within the centre
