A CALL FOR SPONSORSHIP AND DONATIONS FOR
GOUDHURST VILLAGE PLAY AREA.
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.
