10 Year Fundraising Appeal
As we enter our 10th year, so too does much of the original equipment that has enabled us to host countless events week in, week out. As part of our 10 year celebrations we are hoping to raise significant funds to improve and upgrade some of this ageing equipment, in particular:
- reupholstering our chairs
- upgrading our projector
- installing an enhanced surround sound system
- upgrading our stage box
To deliver these improvements we need to raise a sum of £20,000, with a target of reaching this by the middle of May 2017.
As a registered charity, Ropetackle has survived the past decade fuelled by generous community support, whether it be the volunteers who staff the centre, or the those who have joined our Friends scheme. To achieve our fundraising goal, we are hoping the community may come together to further support our future.
Our equipment is vital to bringing out the best in every event, therefore its maintenance and renewal is essential. Your donation will enable us to offer even better experiences to many thousands of people each year.
There are two great ways to support this cause at Ropetackle.
- Join our fantastic Friends scheme for just £15 a year individual, or £25 joint. From this point onwards, your joining donation will go entirely into the fundraising pot for improved equipment, plus you can enjoy a range of benefits.
- Make a standalone donation of any amount you wish. (If you donate £15+ you will automatically become a Friend). It would take just 200 generous donors of £100 to reach our fundraising goal. Could this be you?
You can also donate by telephone on 01273 464440 or in person.
Whichever way you choose to support, and by however much, you will be helping build a better Ropetackle for everyone to enjoy. As a gesture of thanks, we will be creating a special word-cloud artwork comprising the names of all donors (you can opt out of this if you wish), to represent and embody the community support that underpins Ropetackle, its past, present, and with your help, its future.
We have also organised specific fundraising events including a Race Night (Saturday 6th May) and Benefit Auction (Saturday 13th May), with more in the pipeline! Keep an eye on the website, join our mailing list, or follow us on social media for more details as they are announced.
