We have been working on the OASIS Community Centre and Community Gardens for 10 years and our play equipment is old and insufficient for our many kids projects today including our project for children with special needs and disabilities. So we want to create an amazing playground for all our projects to enjoy but especially our Treasured Kids respite care project for children with special needs and disabilities. We have been awarded £25,000 grant funding but this needs to be match funded by at least £25,000. We want to make this a magical place for children to come to and belong to have amazing imaginative play experiences. We want to give the best for all our local children.
We want to put a large piece of play equipment across the one end of the OASIS Gardens with over 30 play experiences and opportunities. Then we want to install a wheelchair roundabout, a few Springers for younger children, a new bucket swing, some other pieces of play equipment around the park. This will be a real attraction for the local children who have few opportunities in this area. The Oasis is now the site of many community events and is at the heart of the community for many people. Hundreds of children use the play park equipment and we have over 10,000 people visit the site annually.
We need help to raise this funding and give local children the best playground they have visited right in the heart of their community and the best play opportunities that we can give to them.
