Day 10 (1 May)
Since the operations manager and director could not attend our final presentation yesterday, our group presented our design proposal to the fundraising manager instead. Center point was very pleased with our ideas as most of their concerns and requirements were taken into consideration. We sincerely hope that our proposal could help them to successfully secure funding to offer a better gathering place for the young adults and staffs.
Big thanks to our team for all the excellent works!

The skylight is a huge asset to the quality of the existing space. The atrium retains the original industrial fabric of the building, which was previously used as a textile factory.

..as well as for training purposes for the young people, to provide skills and knowledge support.

Our agenda is to reach out to the homeless community in Greater Manchester and support initiatives and efforts by Mustard Tree, a charity organisation providing support to those in need, through the idea of mobility. The project should also be a medium of social enrichment, giving our group the opportunity to listen, interact and support the homeless in Manchester through volunteering, interactions and contributions.
