The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following fundraising efforts since January. We've made brilliant progress since the turn of the year and it's great to see that outstanding balance reducing the way it has since Christmas.
In summary the main updates are: £105 from Marple Tuesday Bridge Club, £200 from Asda's Chosen by You scheme, £1,500 from Marple Area Committee Flexibility Fund, £100 from the Nationwide Building Society, £587 from our Easter Raffle and Collection in Asda, £1,000 donated by The Marple Website, £100 donated by Nitrotek Ltd, £1,120 raised by Marple Skatefest II, £187 raised at Hawk Green Maypole Event, £64 donated by Trident Electronics, another £56 from the Ring o' Bells Quiz Nights and £500 from the Rotary Club of Stockport.
This gives us more fantastic progress against our £100,000 target and thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we only need to raise a further £12,198.
