THE Saxongate Appeal to raise £2million for the community learning centre in Huntingdon is just £134,000 short of its target.
The rest of the money has been raised since the appeal was launched in The Hunts Post last June.
The project, which includes flats for people with disabilities, and public spaces available for anyone in the community, is the brainchild of the Papworth Trust.
The charity has a series of events this summer designed to raise the rest of the cash.
