£185raised of £1,000 target by 11 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to provide a new skatepark in Helston, aiming to raise the necessary funds to secure what we see as an essential local provision for children.

What is crowdfunding?

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.

Story

You maybe aware of the community takeover of the lease for the Helston Coronation Boating lake by the local charity South Kerrier Alliance. There is provision for replacement of the existing skate park, but a short fall in the funding of £6,000. I am one of the volunteers who are involved in the group "re-vamp the ramps" that aim to raise the necessary monies to secure what we see as an essential provision for children of all ages within our community and also an attraction for tourists to our town. Without the skate park many children would be left to skate unsafely and often anti-socially within residential areas. The existing skatepark is in need of a major update with planned temporary repair work in August only just halting a full closure. This would be a great shame for the whole community, as it provides a great social hub for young people in Helston.

A fundraising event at Helston Skatepark will be held on the 12th of August, come along have some fun!

    All 3 of my boys (and myself 😂) enjoy the skatepark in Helston multiple times a week. It's the perfect place to let off steam after a tiring day in school. We would absolutely hate to lose it 😔

    I think a skate park is an asset for any area, it is something that is always well used, and never goes out of fashion. Good luck with the fundraising.
