£7,500 goal

Campaign created 8 months ago
ALL MONEY RAISED(REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THE TARGET IS MET) WILL BE USED TO BETTER THE SKATEPARK IN SOMEWAY. EVEN IF WE CAN'T GET THE EXTENSION WE ARE HOPING FOR WE WILL STILL PROPOSE TO USE THE DONATIONS FOR THINGS LIKE GRAFFITI REMOVAL, A WATER FOUNTAIN, RE CONCRETING IN CERTAIN BUMPY AREAS ETC. 
Please know and understand this before donating to us. With that said and done please take just a little bit of time out of your day to read our story, why we are asking for your help and what we will do with your money. All donations, even small ones (or just sharing the page with people who might potentially be able to donate), will be massively appreciated by the people running this page and also anyone who rides at Uckfield. 
We are raising money on behalf of the Uckfield skatepark regulars and the wider Uckfield community.
Uckfield skatepark was built for people and a community that don't even use it anymore. Our skatepark was built purely with skateboarding in mind and consists only of miniature quarter pipes with tiny transitions, a mini ramp with no room to flyout of and banks, banks, some more slightly larger banks and would you believe it two banks put together to form a really terrible " A Frame". Which is really not a great layout for the scooter, bmx and aggresive skate riders that use it in this day and age.
So...
We have been told by the Mayor of Uckfield that in order to have our skatepark renovated we will need to raise a considerable amount of money and that is why we have turned to the internet, our friends and family and you (whoever may be reading this).
With the money hopefully raised from this project we hope to renovate the skatepark (just like other local areas around us have done) so that it is a more enjoyable, welcoming and better in general. 
So now to talk more specifically about what we will do with the money. If enough is raised we will:
Hope to build a complete new section just behind the current skatepark that will consist of a bowl section with an extension, a spine in the middle of it and maybe some other features, for example a nipple (a little hump -nipple shaped ramp)or a tear drop on the end of the spine.
We will also want to add a water fountain, due to the fact that in the summer we are having to send people every thirty minutes all the way down and then back up the hill to fill up our water bottles (which is completely unnecessary when you could just have a water fountain at the skatepark), and a large umbrella type thing that we can get shade under. Maybe with benches in etc.
We also want to indirectly help uckfield grow as a place by bringing in more people to ride and have fun with us at our skatepark, whether it is the new or old one.
This is all, very obviously, an extremely brief outline for what we do with the money raised. However it would mean so much to everyone that rides at Uckfield if even the littlest amount of support was shown.
Thanks a lot for even giving me and us the the time to show how much we would love a new skatepark and what we would potentially do with the money raised for it.
