for Goudhurst and Kilndown Ready Call

£450.00 + £112.50 Gift Aid = £562.50
Donated to Goudhurst Playpark (Back Lane)’s £34000.00 Goal




As you may be aware Goudhurst Village Play Area (on Back Lane adjacent to the Church Rooms) is in desperate need of renovation. The Play Area is used by a large section of our community, from toddlers to teenagers, but unfortunately much of the equipment has now been condemned and subsequently removed. The Play Area is a vital space for the children of our community so they may play outdoors and be physically active; it is sorely missed by children, parents and grandparents alike. We are excited to tell you that our community, supported by Goudhurst Parish Council, is embarking on a fundraising mission to enable us to fully upgrade the Play Area with brand-new play equipment.


This is why we are asking for your help. The children of the Village, and their parents, have been voting on a final design for the new Play Area – the chosen design was from Wicksteed, a company that has been manufacturing outdoor play equipment since 1918. The attached, chosen design, is costed at £34,000.


Goudhurst Parish Council has budgeted £14,000 towards the project so we need to raise the remaining £20,000 though our fundraising efforts and the generosity of our community.


With this in mind we are seeking a main sponsor for this project with a donation in excess of £5,000. In return your name or company name and logo will headline our permanent sponsorship board which will be situated in the Play Area. There is further opportunity to sponsor the Play Area with suggested donations of between £1,000 and £5,000 and again your name or company name will be included on the sponsorship board. If you would like to sponsor the Play Area please contact Jayne Russell at [email protected] or call 07766 553728.


However if you are not in a position to sponsor please help us and donate as much as you can to help us achieve our fundraising target so we can try and get this equipment installed as soon as we can. Any donation large or small would help and would be incredibly generous.

Kind Regards

Jayne Russell, Laura Freear and Emily McKay

Thanks to Goudhurst Parish Council for their contribution of £14,000 and to Goudhurst & Kilndown Readycall for their donation of £500 towards this project so far.

All funds raised will be passed to Goudhurst and Kilndown Ready Call irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
