Weʼve raised £3,607 to help HarPA fund workshops with young people & build a Living Ark at Somerford Grove Adventure Playground.
- Tottenham, London, United Kingdom
- Funded on Friday, 1st July 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are working on a project to give young people access to play, education, training, work experience and employment opportunities in partnership with HTA Design, NewmanFrancis and other organisations working currently, or hoping to work in the Tottenham area.
The total project cost is £20,000. We have been fortunate to have secured significant pledges from a number of corporate bodies working in the area. We now need your support to raise the final £5,000 to allow us to build the Living Ark and fund associated workshops. A small start to building a better future for our young people in regeneration areas”
We have already enjoyed two sketch workshops at the Somerford Grove Adventure Playground and we are raising money to build a new play space, ‘The Ark’, which the playground own but do not have resources to construct. We will use this as a catalyst for further workshops ranging from ‘using tools’ through to planning and designing and building the Ark. This project will enable us to engage with children who use the playground and local schools and build pathways for local children to access play, education, training, work experience, further education and, ultimately, employment.
We are aiming to construct the building in the Summer, with volunteers working alongside the children and young people. We will also be working with Adventure Playground Engineers http://apesatplay.com/ and The Risk Agency http://riskagency.org/ in its reconstruction.
