A big thank you to everyone who has contributed so far to the playground redevelopment appeal. As at the1st January, £2,595 had been donated by 79 people.
Donations can still be made at http://playground.fosap.org
We were originally hoping to raise £12,000, which would have enabled us to bid for upto £80,000 from various landfill trusts. However, a more modest bid has since been made for £50,000 [the maximum permissible] from the Enovert Community Trust, which requires just £5,000 contribution from the community. A further application to another Trust for around £10,000 will be made at the end of January. If both applications are successful, it will enable the proposed new play/ climbing equipment to be installed later this Summer. The final level of funding available will also determine whether or not some other smaller playground improvements will be able to be undertaken.
We expect to hear the result of the Enovert C.T. application before the end of January, so we are proposing to now have a big push to effectively double the amount of donations received so far. If you can help by making a new, or even further, donation, it would be wonderful !

Many thanks in anticipation of your generosity. If the applications are successful, and we can achieve the required £5,000 in donations, these much needed improvements will bring such enjoyment to so many children and their families.
