Crowd Funding Launched

We are purchasing a swing that is suitable for the less able and the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ fund is funding most of it with an award of £4,800. We have found a rather nice swing that a little more expensive but worth the extra money.

To bridge the funding gap of £800 we have started a crowd funding page for supporters to make donations. You can view it by CLICKING HERE.

Our thanks in advance for your support,

That Went Well………

Our thanks to everyone who supported todays events in the park – and what a day it was. It turned out to be our biggest EVER fundraiser thanks to everyones kindness and generosity.

For the record more than 1,000 children completed the Easter egg hunt, 258 people took part in the Hook a Duck Championships and more than £500 was raised on the tombola. Every penny from today will be invested in the park.

Our thanks also go to some special volunteers who made today happen as they are not formal members of the Friends of Sandall Park – but wanted to help out….. brilliant.

The busiest ‘people’ today were Minnie and Mickey mouse. Regular supporters of ours…. so thanks Spotty Frogs. The Easter bonnet competition was tough call!

Finally we must point out the hard work and contribution of the council Neighbourhood Team – without them today would never have happened. Thankyou.

All in all – a cracking day. Bring on the next event……..

Adventure Play Coming Soon

Our Woodland Adventure Play is a step closer than it was 3 years ago! Which is how long its taken us to get to this stage.

We’ve only got funding for half of the plan so far (the low equipment on the right of the plan) but we hope to acquire further funding in the future to complete the picture. We hope it will be installed in the not too distant future.  You can see full details of the project CLICKING HERE.

Watch this space.
