Weʼre raising £60,000 to keep Sk8side open and to continue to do youth work within other areas of Ashford. we are no longer funded to carry out our work.

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.
In order for Sk8side to remain open and to continue working with the youth that use the skate park and youth projects in the wider community of Ashford (Bockhanger, Hothfield, Community Support Unit) we need funding. Our overall goal amount will fund us for a whole year. We use the money to provide young people with equipment, resources, activities and access to free trips. Sk8side is a hub for young people to gain support, we encourage them to be involved with the running of the centre. We have a team of young people who volunteer to run the skate shop and tuck shop. We are also there for people using the skate park should they have an accident we can patch them up or call for assistance. We are open to all ages 8-19.

Hope you get the support you need to reach your goals. We need somewhere young people can go and socialise and it would be a shame to see this place close.

Alot of memories tied to this place, would hate to see it close! Hope things go well!
