Hopewell Sports & Community Centre
Regular visitors to our part of Jamaica may have noticed there is a football field at the westend of Hopewell. It was a project of Hanover Charities in 1976 but had fallen into total disrepair.
Nan Brenninkmeyer, a Round Hill shareholder and generous supporter of Hanover Charities, has spearheaded a project to not just revive this field, but add to it, making it a true sporting complex. “The clubhouse has been declared unsafe; the football field needs repairing, and we need to build a structure which will have shower and changing facilities,” she says. In addition, the complex would have an area where the children of Hopewell can do homework and other wholesome activities.
As a result of the tremendous support from our donors, the Hopewell Sports & Community Centre, formerly called the Orchard Sports Complex, saw its grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting take place on Friday, November 9th, 2018.
The centre offers the following:
- Community/Homework Centre
- Computer Lab
- Two Offices (Hanover Charities & Jaycees)
- Multi-purpose Hall with veranda
- Basketball and Netball Courts
- New Concrete Bleachers
- Football Field
- Lennox Lewis League of Champions Boxing Gym
