I'm delighted to report that the Julian Wadden Family Treasure Hunt on Saturday raised an amazing total of £2,154 (subject to a couple of payments being confirmed.)

This was made up of £139 donations on on the day, £308 raffle takings, £1,657 of sponsorship paid / pledged and £50+ donated via Local Giving. This means that with the Council's Commuted Sums of £1,702 we now have £3,856 towards the replacement of the old Springers in the Infants Play Area.

We need a minimum of £5,000 and ideally around £2K more than that. So we've a way to go yet and we'll be looking at other ways to boost the funding.

In the meantime, if you'd like to contribute you can still donate with Gift-Aid (if you are a UK Tax Payer) via our Local Giving Appeal:

https://localgiving.org/appeal/marple-play-area/

Inspired by the fantastic support from our local business community The Marple Website has become the latest £50 Premier Sponsor of the Family Treasure Hunt in Marple Memorial Park tomorrow:

The Marple Website
Web site: www.marple.website
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marplewebsite/
Twitter: https://twitter.com/marplewebsite

Thanks to the local businesses who have sponsored the event we have already raised an amazing £1,597! This compares to £1,015 of sponsorship this time last year and a total of £1,450 after donations and raffle takings on the day. So whatever happens it will be a record breaker and if the weather is kind we we should smash it!

A special thanks also to Mega Sponsor DJS Research and event organiser Julian Wadden Estate Agents who we'll be promoting next!
