Help to lift our students' spirits!

We would like to install a platform lift within our building to help accommodate our current, and prospective student base for the future. This lift would mean that students who were previously unable to reach the upper floors can now access a wider range of classrooms, and two of the main toilets we have in the building.

We have submitted an application to the Aviva Community Fund where we rely on votes from the local community to enable us to get to the finalist stage, from then we hope to secure funding for the lift. The voting period is open from the 23rd October until midday on the 20th November and enables you to cast 10 votes for one or more community projects.

Please vote for The Percival Guildhouse Lift Project, to help in our quest to lift our students’ spirits!

Our Story: 

Here at The Percival Guildhouse, community is at the heart of what we do! As a registered charity in Rugby Town Centre, we provide non-vocational adult education to the community of Rugby and the surrounding areas. With lots of wonderful classes running in the morning, afternoon, evening and Saturday dayschools there is lots for
all to enjoy.

64% of our current students are aged between 62 - 78, and a further 10% are over 80 years old. Several have health conditions which make it difficult for them to access the 1st and 2nd floors of our Grade II Listed building. This can mean being unable to attend or even having to withdraw from their class altogether. We are making every effort to secure funding to install a lift to make the whole building accessible.
