Broadmarsh, Nottingham Skate Spot - Crowdfunder

Dear Beloved Friends,

I apologise for contacting you like this. I have a monetary request to make of you.

I am a doctor from the small village of Nottingham City. Our town has recently been decimated by the destruction of our esteemed shopping centre: the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre. Before this incident, we were a prosperous community built on commerce but, alas, we have fallen on hard times.

The village’s elders has agreed to build a space for skateboarding on part of the site of the aforementioned shopping centre. We now need to go about filling this spot with obstacles. I am here seeking the injection of £15,000 into our fayre citie. I am therefore presenting you with a unique opportunity to make an investment in skateboarding.

As some of you will recall, Nottingham once house a treasured skateboard spot: the Broadmarsh Banks. Many travelled far and wide to roll on this hallowed ground. This venture will allow for the creation of a new spot very close to where the original banks lay.

We would like to build the spot urgently. Please enter your bank details into the following, 100% secure, website: A new skate-friendly public space in Nottingham - a Community crowdfunding project in Nottingham by Skate Nottingham You also have the opportunity to exchange money for rewards such as a 100% genuine wooden skateboard deck from world-famous skateboard shop ‘Forty Two Shop’.

Your immediate response would be gratefully accepted.

Your best regard,
Dr Dent Face

P.s. Please watch video from our charismatic leader explaining our investment scheme:

Bumping this for anyone who might have missed it. We’ve had a really encouraging amount of donations, but if anyone wants to help fund this new skate spot in any small way please click on this:

What happens if the target isn’t met? Can you bombard some local companies or larger skate companies for some charity?

Good question. If anyone knows any philanthropically-minded companies who might be willing to support this, ask them to get in touch with Chris at Skate Nottingham - contact@skatenottingham.co.uk

Also Sport England will give us £7,500 when we reach £3,750 (which we are very close to doing). But that does still leave a further £3,750.

The donations have already come out of people’s accounts, maybe Crowdfunder refunds everyone automatically?

Edit: we just got the Sport England cash. Big shout out to whoever just donated.

Some new rewards added to the Crowdfunder, included System Magazine issue 1 for £40 if anyone wants to relive that moment in UK skate history.

Just chucked a fiver in. Really hope it reaches the goal.

Thanks so much dude. Mega appreciated!

No worries mate, haven’t been to Notts for a couple of years but still feel a huge attachment to it.
