Local community rallies support for South Hill Park

October 8, 2020

South Hill Park would like to share its gratitude for all the wonderful ways the local community has been supporting the Arts Centre in its fundraising campaign to raise £500,000.

Recently, Co Op Easthampstead kindly donated £250 to the campaign, stating ‘in line with co ops values of community support, Co Op Easthampstead is very happy to be helping such a pivotal part of our town from closure. South Hill Park has always been somewhere special to each of our hearts and we are so proud to be able to support them.’ The Co Op Local Community Fund supports projects across the UK that their members care about. They donate 1% of what their members spend on selected own-brand products and services to these community projects, and we were delighted to have been chosen as one to support.

Other members of the community have also been rallying up support for our Arts Centre. Local resident Wendy has been making fantastic face masks and donating 25% of the profits to South Hill Park. You can find out more on her Facebook page ‘handmademasksSHP’. David Baker has taken on the huge challenge to run 500,000 metres in order to raise £1000 towards the fundraising campaign, and Al Heslop, who is part of the Creative Control Studio team, offered prizes in exchange for people’s donations, including one full day recording in the studio. He managed to raise a brilliant £750. Plus, local community Facebook group Ascot People had the great idea to hold a Jumble Trail, in which 40 sellers took part selling from their driveway. Anyone wanting to take part was provided a street list and basic google map so they could walk or drive the trail, and in total they raised £349.

In July the Government announced a Covid-19 support package for the arts worth £1.57bn, a combination of grants and loans. On 21 August South Hill Park submitted its application for a grant to support the Arts Centre from 1 October 2020 to 31 March 2021 – the full period covered by the fund. Managed by Arts Council England, South Hill Park will know if its application was successful by the beginning of October.

We are incredibly grateful to all the support we have received from the local community, from people running their own fundraising campaigns and donating on the website, to all the kind wishes we have received. Our goal is to continue to provide the community a space to enjoy the arts, try something new, and come together.
