Mike Baker Room Appeal

We need to raise £30,000 to refurbish our Cambridgeshire residential centre, providing innovative learning spaces for less advantaged young people. 

Each year over 1,200 less advantaged students attend subject specific or skill based residential courses at our centre. The topics they explore are delivered by academics and researchers at the cutting edge of their field, and give students an insight into what they could pursue. To make sure our facilities match up to this inspiring atmosphere we must revamp this space so that each of our students can fully immerse themselves in their subjects and leave us feeling truly inspired.

Our vision is to create an innovative learning space with modern facilities which can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether it’s planning a group presentation, exploring concepts for a project or conducting an experiment, this space will offer a range of resources and a vibrant, creative atmosphere.
 
To recognise the impact that Mike Baker had on Villiers Park, driven by his passion for helping less-advantaged young people, we will name this inspiring study space the ‘Mike Baker Room’.
