On 19th August 2017 we will be decluttering, cleaning and organising the roller sports equipment and public areas of Ardwick Sports Hall. We have the manpower and the passion already in place to deliver this event. We are reaching out to the spacehive community to find donations of materials and equipment to make this event the best it can be. We have 30 confirmed volunteers available on the day, with a further 20 currently interested. The schedule of events can be found on our public facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/319039551856497/ Our current costs for the day are running at: £600. £ -300 food & refreshments for volunteers, -£200 skip hire, -£100 cleaning supplies. We would be happy to take donations towards these amounts we are also interested in donations to push this project further - 600mm ceiling tiles - LED rope light - racking & storage - floor sealant - paint - signage - tradespeople - etc
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Phase 1 is a modest goal and the first step towards a bigger and better future. The 4 people currently behind Manchester Roller Sports have a combined experience of over 130 years delivering community based activities. Our 5 year plan is to rebuild Ardwick Sports Hall as an arena of Roller Sport Excellence in Manchester. We currently provide over 30 hours of roller sports activity to over 300 members of the community every week and are looking to provide over 100 hours of activities, to over 1000 weekly users, by end 2018. The 19th August project will go ahead regardless of the funding here. We respect that the timescale is tight for phase 1, if you are part of a larger fund and wish to get involved from phase 2, we can talk and see which tasks we can pick up next to take us closer to our goal. The purge, clean and organise will allow the immediate formation of two new activities at the centre, make the centre more visually appealing to new people and help us retain new visitors.
Steps to get it done:
As mentioned above, as much as financial funding can go a long way. We will be looking to use any funding to simply expand the scope of the 19th August project to deliver over and above its current remit. What We Need: - food & drink suppliers (donations for 30+ people) - Maxi Skip - Cleaning Supplies (for 30+ people) What Would be Great to Have: - Ceiling tiles (donations) - lighting (donations) - electrician (time for free) - racking & storage (all types, donations) - sports hall floor paint (for lines 10sqm coverage) - sports hall floor sealant (60sqm coverage) - signage (internal and external) - anything else (lets talk) any funding received will go towards fulfilling the wish list on a "what will have the best and most impact now" decision making basis.
