Weʼve raised £640 to help fund a new playground in Richings Park
- Iver, United Kingdom
- Funded on Friday, 22nd December 2017
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.
The residents of Richings Park are raising funds to build a new playground at Richings Park Sports Club. We need your support to prove that this is something local residents need and will use.
Why is this important?
If you live in Richings Park you'll be acutely aware that there isn't a playground to take children to. The nearest parks are a drive away in Iver village or Langley. A group of parents now have agreement from the Residents Association and the Sports Club in Richings Park to build a playground in the Sports Club grounds. To raise the necessary funds to build the playground we need the support of local residents.
On Saturday 14th October we hosted a 'Hollywood Bollywood' themed charity black tie dinner at Richings Sports Park, where guests were treated to an evening of music, dancing and Indian cuisine! It was a great night and fantastic to see the whole village come together to raise thousands of pounds towards building the playground.
Our next fundraising event is a Fireworks Display on Sunday 5th November and it would be brilliant if you could join us!
We've also set up this Just Giving page to offer another simple way for people to support the initiative.
The playground is an investment in the future of Richings Park. It will bring local kids and young families together and will help to build a stronger community where everyone benefits.
Please give whatever you can to help make the playground a reality.
Thanks so much! :)
