Friends of Hardie Park have been actively fundraising this year to fund a new slide in the park.

The Crazy Travel Fundraising Challenge

Rotary Club Corringham Thameside donation

Support for the project has been great and the idea of a new slide has been welcomed by the community.

The figure has been slowly rising but we’ve recently had some fantastic news which will help us reach our target of £25,000!

We have been granted £14,000 towards our new embankment slide from Thurrock Council’s Community Environmental Development Fund.

Add that to £5000 that was donated for the Crazy Travel Challenge, £2000 we have received from the Co-op Community Fund and £500 from Rotary Club Corringham Thameside and we are nearly there!

We hope to have it installed by the end of March 2019!
