Supporting Nottingham residents with the new Tiger Community Hub

Supporting Nottingham residents with the new Tiger Community Hub

“Tiger is Passionate about supporting people to grow through motivation, confidence, and skills building. It is at the heart of all our projects. We help people to help themselves.”

The Tiger Community Hub is now officially open! This major community milestone in the city center features a community-run café, sustainability range and volunteer makes in our shop, as well as ample space for a wide range of activities and workshops run by both us and other community groups from around the city. Project Director Toni Jarvis said of the opening “We are very pleased to have hit our opening date target. We’ve had a quiet start which has enabled us to settle into the space and we are now looking forward to seeing lots of people in the next few weeks coming to join us for free activities or a cuppa and cake in the café.”

At Tiger, we feel that sewing and crafting activities not only foster a sense of community but also support people’s mental health, something we as organisation feel passionate about. As we emerge into life post covid, we have a chance to hone that community spirit and support each other during what continues to be difficult times. The Tiger Community Hub will be a safe and welcoming space for all members of the Nottingham community.
