raised so far



Our wonderful RUSH skate park is now closed. We want to be sure we can protect the Rush legacy and build again. WE NEED TO BE READY!

Latest News


Thanks as ever for all the encouragement and support. We are getting closer to £15,000 which means £5,000 raised since the park closed - this is fantastic and shows this issue is not going away.

Productive  meeting this week at Stroud District Council with CEO Kathy O’Leary and Doina Cornell - leader of the council. Also supported by Tom Beasley of Active Gloucestershire and our planner. A number of serious sites being discussed and worked on still.

The charity application has gone in and that will make a big difference to the kind of conversations we can then start having. 

Great fundraising meeting too. I know a lot of you have been in touch. Please nag Debbie - she won’t mind. If you have an idea - we’re in! We have some good initiatives that will keep profile high over the coming weeks and months.

Today is Siobhan Baillie MPs day. She is running Stroud Half for us! Good luck Siobha! £420 raised so far, would love to get that to £1000 and we would the have passed the £15k.

WE WILL GET A NEW SKATEPARK - keep believing!
