Tiger brings community to the City Centre

Tiger brings community to the City Centre

March 21st, 2022

Tiger Community Enterprise CIC is working hard to open our new community hub by Spring 2022. The hub is based at 19-21 Lister Gate, Nottingham, and aims to increase community outreach in the city center for all city and county residents. This location was specifically chosen for easy accessibility via car and public transport from all over the county, whilst simultaneously bringing life to a quiet area of the city center.


The Tiger Community Hub will engage and support the community in a variety of ways including activities and workshops, volunteer opportunities, providing space for other local community groups, and a shop/café area for people to socialize and engage in simple mindful crafting activities.


Tiger CE CIC took over the lease on the 1st Feb and has already had a lovely window display created by Nottinghamshire Federation Women’s Institute. Just one of the many organizations we plan on working within the hub. Over the next few weeks, the Tiger Team is working on setting up the premises to be furnished and ready to soft open by the beginning of April.


We are currently looking for volunteers for a wide range of roles including work in the shop and café, supporting activity workshops, help with moving and setting up the new premises. If people are interested in volunteering they need to email marielle@tigerprojects.co.uk – the email should include availability, relevant skills/roles interested in, any accessibility needs, and a good contact number. Marielle Newton, Director at Tiger said “This is a great opportunity for people to develop skills and give back to their community, whether you are looking for experience to build your CV or just have some free time and want to support your local community, we have a range of opportunities available. Throughout the pandemic, we saw both a large increase in the need for community support, as well as people from all walks of life wanting to get involved and support community projects.”
