Skate event will fund brand new roller rink
THE team behind a new multi-activity centre is staging a fundraiser on Saturday so it can open as a roller-skating rink this summer.
Time To Care (UK) CIC, a community interest company, is slowly transforming the former Everett Charles Technologies premises on Goodall Street into a climbing and bouldering centre, multi-sports area, soft play centre, community centre and cafe.
Director Andy Brooks is proposing to open a roller-rink later this month and develop the other proposals in the future.
The fundraiser will involve a roller-disco, climbing and bouldering walls, bouncy castles and archery demonstrations.
Between 9am and 4pm there is a sponsored ‘Skate Around the Nation’ event where children are challenged to skate around a giant map of the UK as many times as they can in 15 minutes.
There will be a rollerdisco after 4pm and live music from band Low Orbit from 7pm.
Andy said: “We need your help to make the project a success and open for the holidays.”
