At Rush Skate Park we are dedicated to creating a safe place for action sports enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to practice, socialise and enjoy themselves.
Every year, Rush Skate Park is visited by thousands of people, all of whom come to experience our excellent skate park facilities.
Running a skate park, as we have discovered over the years, is an expensive project to undertake. On average it costs us just over £10,000 per week to remain open, a staggering amount for a self-funded, small business. Contrary to popular opinions, Rush Skate Park receives absolutely no external funding and is entirely self sufficient as a Community Interest Company (C.I.C).
On top of this, many of you will be aware by this point that we must relocate our current facility. As of right now, we have been offered land just behind the Stratford Park Leisure. This has been offered to us by Stroud Council on the condition that we can pass a planning application. This may seem like a simple task, however, running a planning application of this scale will incur costs slightly shy of £200,000, which we must find before the end of 2020. A daunting task to face alone.
This is where you come in.
We are asking you to help us keep one of the largest skate parks in Europe alive by encouraging users of the park to donate anything they can to our cause. Every bit of support you can offer in this manner is extremely helpful and allows us to continue down the path of providing action sports enthusiasts of all ages, skill and disciplines with an excellent and invaluable facility.
Your donation will help us to carry on providing for the local, national and international community for whom we welcome to Rush Skate Park year in year out, as well as allowing us to continue working towards bringing a brand new, state of the art, facility to Stroud, Gloucestershire.
Please help us to continue to make a difference. A donation button can be found below, we truly appreciate all of your support!
