The Skatepark Project page on the Friends' web site has been updated to explain that during December 2013 Friends of the Park helped the Rotary Club of Marple and Goyt Valley with their Christmas collections at the Marple Co-Op. Collections were also made by Rotary members at New Mills Co-Op and a record-breaking total of more than £2,600 was raised altogether.

The Rotary Club generously shared the proceeds with Friends of the Park in proportion with the help we gave and we were delighted to be presented with a cheque for £850 at a Rotary evening on 14 January.

We were very pleased to learn that we'd helped achieve a record collection and the Rotary Club made just as much as they normally do after giving us our share because they support a number of local, national and international charities, ranging from support for local community projects to the worldwide campaign to eliminate polio.

The Rotary Club of Marple and Goyt Valley meets most Tuesday evenings at the Royal Hotel in Hayfield and visitors are welcome. To find out more about the club visit http://rotary-mgv.org.uk.

Following our £1,000 FM Award from Forever Manchester yesterday and our generous donation of £500 from House-on-the-Hill Software earlier this week, plus several other smaller contributions, we've now updated the Skatepark project page and thermometer on the Friends of the Park site with a new value of £10,549.

We started fund-raising at last year's Marple's Christmas Cracker and we'll be there again this Saturday, so that's exactly one year since we started and we're over halfway.

Well done to everyone who has helped us get this far!
