Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund Lislea’s outdoor community space and playground!
- Lislea, Newry, UK
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.
Lislea Community Association have undertaken an exiting new project to extend our facilities to a new outdoor community space and playground. The facilities will include state of the art play equipment that will suit toddlers to teenagers, adult fitness equipment, a story telling area and a picnic area. We have constructed a new community shed building where we will be providing a range of courses and classes for members of the surrounding communities.
We have benefited from funding from the Big Lottery, Newry, Mourne and Down District Council and EB(NI) Ltd through Regen. We have also been supported by very generous work in kind from the Doherty family. Through concerts, coffee mornings, plays and many other activities, with the support of our community, we have raised funds to purchase the land and pay for the many fees associated with the project. However, we still have had a shortfall in funds and are asking for your help...
Please support our project by donating what you can to this page. We hope that in return you can enjoy limitless access to our new facilities that will be available for years to come.
Check out our website for more information on our project and activities at our centre. Thank you so much for your time and support.
