Weʼve raised £735 to buy equipment for Ratho Community Play Park at Craigpark Crescent.

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 have a fantastic park space in the heart of our lovely village, Ratho, but the only equipment there is being decommissioned! We need to raise funds to fill our park with fun play equipment to create a fantastic community meeting place.
Our Friends of Craig Park group already led a petition to save the park, then worked with City of Edinburgh Council to secure funds to have it landscaped. The Council will install and maintain all equipment, we just need to raise the money! We have already raised enough for an exciting viper swing, a toddler unit and some toddler swings. But given the current equipment will soon be removed, we clearly need more.
Please support this local cause, led (voluntarily) by local residents who care enough to put the time in.
We are applying for larger amounts from funding bodies etc, but we really value the community support! If we beat our target it all goes to buying more equipment for the park. (FYI: a large multiplay feature costs between £15,000 and £25,000!)
