Pioneer Skatepark Appeal

PRESS RELEASE FROM
THE PIONEER CLUB
ST ALBANS
March 6th 2015 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Is There A Silver Lining In Pioneer’s Crowd?

The UK’s oldest skate park is turning to the newest form of funding to raise money to refurbish its outdoor ramps.

The Pioneer Club in St Albans this week launches a Crowdfunding project to raise £10,000 to replace its worn-out outdoor ramps for the summer season.

Trustee Rodney Clarke is fronting the appeal. As a schoolboy Rodney helped build Pioneer’s first ramps in 1987, making it the oldest indoor skate facility in the UK. Rodney – who still lives in St Albans – went on to skate professionally all over the world.

Chairman, Ann Brooks said, “It is imperative for the charity that the park is used year round in order to stay open. We offer a supervised environment for our users, as well as tuition to ensure all young people are able to reach their skateboarding potential. We have very high hopes for this appeal”.

Pioneer is keen to talk to any local building firms who may be willing to help out with materials.

Rodney commented, “We care passionately about the local skate community. Please give generously and help us raise this much-needed funding”.

The Pioneer Club charity is also delighted that Trustee, Annette Cooper, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Mayor’s Pride Awards.
