Thanks to an amazing campaign led by Kate Gillespie, Jan Ryan, Lucy Lyons and myself, plus immense support from the Margate community, shops & businesses, local and national press and an emergency high profile crowdfunding campaign, we were able to save the old Margate Synagogue from auction, where it would likely be developed into flats or become a private home.
At the last minute an anonymous benefactor stepped in to buy the building so that it can be turned into an arts space for the local community and we are now raising funds to develop the building and convert it into the Cliftonville Cultural Space.
