Weʼre raising £10,000 to Renovate Shaldon & Ringmore Play Park
- Shaldon, United Kingdom
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 a group of parents who are hoping to raise funds for our local play park in Shaldon. We have identified that the park is in desperate need of renovation and the replacement of equipment. There is not enough for the children to do and in it's current state it does not cater for all ages adequately. We want the park to become a real hub of our community and a safe place for our children to meet and play. In the past any equipment that became unsafe or broken has been removed and not replaced. We have approached the Council who have no funds at present to help us, so we are trying to make these improvements as a community. The Council have declared the park is at the end of it's life and without the support we are in danger of losing our local park.
A committee has been set up with a formal Constitution. We are intending to apply for grant funding to contribute to the development but will very much need donations to help us reach our target. We are planning to raise funds in stages so have set a target of £10,000 initially. The quotes that we have received from local companies, to have the park fully renovated, are in the region of £80,000.
As you can see we need lots of help!!!
We have created a wish list of equipment and changes we would like implemented and we are asking for support from the local community to help us achieve everything on our list, including providing shelter in the park which currently does not exist.
The proposed park will have greatly improved equipment and be accessible to all. It is a much loved place for children and parents to visit and with the enhanced facilities it will help the children to play and enjoy the outdoors.
Thank you kindly for any donations contributed however large or small. It all helps!!
