It All Began Here at Sands Skateboard Park Holmfirth. In memory of Isaac Mason Atkinson (1998-2012). Who we are. We are a group of young adults who live in Holmfirth and are trying to raise money to improve our local skatepark.
We arranged a meeting with John Fletcher (Head of Parks and Landscapes) and Maryke Woods (Parks Development Officer) at Sands Skatepark on 28th October 2012.
They were really interested in our ideas...
and showed us what could fit the space the council had allocated.
The face painting was complete...
and the skating commenced!
T-shirts were designed...
A lot of people from Sheffield attended and made a donation...
as well as twenty seven of us!
Total raised so far: £2,983.21
Total costs: £866.00
Grants we’ve applied for or are in the process of applying for:
Leo group – funding up to £2,500. This is for the Bradford area but Sarah Rafiq (VCA link officer) said they might consider us, so we sent a hand written application through.
Kirklees Youth Council Grant Scheme – funding up to £500.
Reaching Communities Big Lottery Fund – funding up to £50,000.
We need £55,000 in total!We know it won’t be easy, but hope you can help us achieve our goal.
The Chairman, Donald Firth, explained that there was very little in the council funds at present, but there may be something they can do next financial year.
