Settle Town Council are leading the project to create a Skate Park in Settle.
This has been a long-term dream for the young people of Settle over the past 15 years and has significant support from the local community.
The council aim to raise between £90-100k over the next 12 months to enable us to start work.
Large funding applications have been submitted to various funding sources such as National Lottery, North Yorkshire Police Commissioners Fund, Settle Middle School Legacy Fund and Sport England.
The Town Council have committed £20k towards the scheme and the young people are busy raising money through stalls and other fundraising activities.Community funds raised or donated so far has amounted to £1500 and still coming in. Another £20k has been pledged subject to all other funds being in place.A successful National Lottery bid will add another £9,600. So just over half has been raised or pledged.
We are hoping to complete within 18 months.
This project offers your business a fantastic advertising opportunity, a chance to demonstrate your commitment to the project for the local community and a chance to support a key local project.
We still have 6 spaces on the Sponsors Board – any local business wishing to support this project please contact Rebecca Hill via email firstname.lastname@example.org
