£1,825raised of £27,000 target by 85 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,825 to help fund a new Playarea in Somersall Park

    Somersall, Chesterfield
    Funded on Thursday, 5th October 2017

    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.


    Our park is in need of a long awaited facelift. Our current Playarea is tired, old & in areas unsafe to play on.

    Back in 2014 we formed a friends group to help secure funding for a new Playarea. companies were asked to come up with a design for the new playarea so we carried out consultations in the community and voted for our favourite.

    The total cost of the playarea is 80k and so far we have around 30k for existing funds for the park & the Tesco bags for life which we came second.
    We have applied for a number of grants for funding but have been unsuccessful.

    We would really love a new & safe playarea for our children so we didn't have to keep travelling to other successful parks.

      Wow!!!!!!!!! Mega exciting news! ❤️💫🚀 Our latest funding bid was successful and although we didn't get the full amount we applied for, VIRIDOR did award us £25k! Along with the funds we have already secured and the crowdfunding from you generous lot that means we have about 53k of the 80k we need to build the new play area! Amazing or what? We are so very close now!!!! 26k needed!

    Somersall Park is ready for a facelift. A study of the park has already been completed and a master plan for the site generated. £10K was contributed for the play area in 2007/8 but additional funding needs to be secured.
