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 full update in August.
We're so close now - please keep helping on our final push to reach that £100,000 total by the end of the year!
In summary, the main highlights are: an extra £100 raised from The Samuel Oldknow, £615 raised at Marple Food and Drink Festival, £240 from Marple Soup, £856 from the Art Auction, another £50 from Marple Tuesday Bridge Club, nearly £40 from Robinson's Brewery / Ring o' Bells, another £750 from sponsored bench refurbishments in the Town Centre, £424 from Grow Your Tenner 2016 (so far), £400 from MP William Wragg's Charity of the Month, £100 from ISWOK Boutique's Fashion Sale and Tombola and a number of other smaller miscellaneous donations and contributions received via Local Giving.
Thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we now only need to raise a further £3,956 to reach our £100,000 target.
