AN out-of-school club in Milnsbridge needs £22,000 so it can carry on.
The Boosters club needs the cash to refurbish premises at Crow Lane Junior and Infant School by September.
Susan Hirst, its manager/co- ordinator, said: "Twelve years after we opened we are back in no man's land."
The club was set up in September, 1992, in the basement of the school, in premises that had been a youth club.
Three years later it received money from Huddersfield Pride to provide toilets and a kitchen area and a playscheme began.
In June, 2000, it was runner- up in the playworker of the year awards by the Kids Clubs Network.
In November that year it was the first club in Kirklees to gain Quality Assurance from the KCN.
And in September, 2003, a breakfast club was launched.
But then the club lost its room beneath the school as the school needed it to build an early years unit, which was recommended by Ofsted.
The Boosters club was forced to use the school hall.
Mrs Hirst said this limited activities for the children.
They can move into the school's nursery, but refurbishing it will cost many thousands of pounds, because it needs a kitchen and toilet.
"The needs of the children are so wide apart. Maybe there is someone who has an ounce of sympathy and can give materials - or money!" said Mrs Hirst.
"We have come too far to be knocked down by this. But time is getting on and children, parents and carers are getting restless, wondering what is going to happen when we come back after the summer break."
