To fund a defibrillator and plaque at South Reading Community Centre in memory of Matthew Farrall, a true Whitley lad! It feels fitting that a legacy is left in the heart of the community for the heart of the community. Please dig deep and help out
The heart of Whitley
Whitley Community Development Association was established in 2013 to work with local people for local people. Originally funded by Local Trust we are now working to be a self-sustainable organisation, that supports and encourages local people to get involved, to make the changes and improvements they want.
"My 20 year old son said he wanted Whitley to be a better place to raise his kids one day. He want's to make a difference"
As a result of our working with the community from our base at the Community Cafe, we have earned the title "the beating heart of Whitley".
