Project by Friends of RUSH Skatepark


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!

Happy New Year


A MASSIVE thank you for your support in 2021! Here we go 2022...

A couple of lists for you

2021 Achievements (yes I know overshadowed by Rush closing)

1. New charity Rush Sports Community Trust (RushSCT) is registered

2. Close to £16,500 raised to date (sorry some more updates to be done)

3. A fantastic group of supporters, encouragers and enthusiasts have come together 

2022 To do list - VERY confident about most of these!

  • Secure a site - yes I know I keep saying it but there is progress and really do hope to be able to tell you more very soon
  • Open charity bank account (then we can claim gift aid and start to talk to funders)
  • Have planning permission (or be very close to it)
  • Know who will be funding the new park – we expect to need millions
  • May be just may be get a build started
  • Publish a book of Rush memories
  • Hold lots of fundraising events
  • Have a Wikipedia entry

So not much! If any of you have ideas or can help please reach out again (even if you have before - I am sending out from my personal email address). We are always looking out for people to set up their own challenges... (more about mine soon)
