The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following fundraising efforts since the last update in July. We're continuing to make good progress as we chip away at the relatively small total that we now need to reach our target - so please keep helping us!
In summary the main updates are: £80 raised from sale of photos at Samuel Oldknows, £450 from sponsored bench refurbishments in the Town Centre, £50 from Asda Chosen by You, £50 from Romiley and Marple Lions and £150 from Marple Carnival. We've also continued to receive some income from the Grow Your Tenner scheme and a few other minor donations too.
Thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we now only need to raise a further £7,645 to reach our £100,000 target.Please note that you can still donate to our Appeal here: https://localgiving.org/appeal/marpleskatepark/
