Aviva Community Fund Result
Friends of Onchan Park Table Tennis Fund
– Update 16/01/18 – The judges haven’t chosen our project to receive funding. However, to recognise our achievement in reaching the finals, Aviva are going to donate £500 to our project.
In 2016 we saved Onchan Park, last year we entered the Aviva Community Fund to bid for funding for a Table Tennis area for community use. We had amazing support from local people and supporters in 2016 and votes from supporters got our project to the finals of the process. The judges didn’t choose our project to receive the full funding, but Aviva will donate £500 towards developing facilities at the park. So it’s back to the drawing board for the table tennis bid and watch this space for the next project!
Outdoor table tennis would be a great addition to Onchan Park as it’s such an inclusive activity for all ages and abilities. It would really encourage the whole community to make use of Onchan Park in an area of the park that needs regeneration.
