Our project

What do we want?

Please help us to resurface our Netball/Basketball courts.

Why do we want it?

The surface is now too dangerous to hold sporting activities on and we have over 700 pupils who would benefit daily from the new courts. Local Primary Schools would also benefit as they have used the outside area in the past.

Physical Education is a huge part of our daily pupil wellbeing and our aim is to teach our pupils the importance of physical health.

We also run a Community Sports Centre in the evenings and weekends and the new surface would benefit our local community users.

Where your money goes

The contractors will remove the existing surface to a depth of 30mm.

A new surface of thermoplastic screed will then be applied.

The total cost of this project will be £27,000 and we are raising small amounts doing various activities to help towards this. The amount raised on Rocket Fund will be a portion of the desired target.

Total of this project = £2,000

Help us reach our target
