Funding bid for Resi at Southsea Skatepark / Tescos Bag of Help


Posted on : 30-Jan-2017 | By : Effraim | In : Publicity

By far the main thing we get asked almost everyday, “are you getting a resi?”. “The skatepark would be so much better with a resi”.

What’s a resi?

The Resi Ramp is the perfect ramp for riders or skaters who want to try big tricks and land safely or fall without receiving a major injury. The structure of the ramp is made from wood. On top of the wood is about a foot of foam or padding. The top layer of the ramp is the plastic composite referred to as “resi”. (see photo below)

We have been selected as one of three charities by Tescos bags of help to have a resi ramp built at Southsea Skatepark.

Now Southsea Skatepark Needs your help.
We need you all to do some shopping at Tescos North Harbour which will give you a blue token. You then need to put that token in our box, the more tokens go in, the more money we can get which will help us build the resi that will go between the fun box and the in and out and replace the step up ramp.

So if you are local in the Portsmouth area, drop us a token into Box 1 at North Harbour Tescos, (see photo) vote in store until 25th February.

Thank you.
