Burley in Wharfedale Playground Project (BWPP)
Fundraising for BWPP is moving forward at a rapid rate with over £30,000 raised already towards the anticipated cost of around £100,000; a grant of £50,000 has recently been applied for. The cost includes not only a new playground for children but also adult fitness equipment in Grange Park. There have been several fundraising events over the past few months and more are planned between now and the end of October - see the Village Diary for details. In addition there have been many generous donations from individuals and organisations.
If you want to donate to this very worthwhile project please send a cheque or cash to Rachael Robinson at 5 Far Mead Court (payable to Burley in Wharfedale Conmmunity Trust).
Fundraising is being coordinated by Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust (BWCT). This is a registered charity number 1098871 for Gift Aid purposes.
Auction for Playground Project
This Auction is another initiative to help raise money for a new playground in our village. The playground equipment will be influenced by the hundreds of school children who have written to describe the type of space they would like to have on their doorstep. To date, the Playground Project has raised just over £30,000 and has recently applied for a grant of £50,000. The total needed to make this play area one that can be enjoyed by everyone within the community is around the £100,000 mark. We are confident that we can raise this before the end of 2016. Please be a part of this exciting adventure!!
The online auction is between 16 and 31 July 2016 - more details HERE.
