When the Hayling Island skate park was declared unsafe for use by the local council with no plans to replace it, the community banded together to raise funds for a new and improved one to be built in its place. One of our key focuses at the Foundation is the wellbeing of people – so investing in the young (and old!) people in the area in this way was an easy choice. The skate park will provide a fun and safe space for the skating community to spend their time and meet new friends.
From start to finish this project was a huge community effort and really showed what was possible when enough people come together for a common goal. In July 2021 the organisers hosted a Skate Jam at the site of the skatepark to help raise funds and awareness. Lydia and Jodie were in attendance with the FatFace Foundation gazebo and had an absolute blast!
