Fundraisers get their skates on for cash-strapped rink

First published in News

Youngsters and parents staged a sponsored skate in a bid to raise money for a cash-strapped rink.

The Dovercourt Skating Rink was hit by crippling charges after a youngster broke his ankle and sued.

Insurance costs soared from £2,800 to a massive £12,000.

The rink desperately needs £1,000 to stay afloat so supporters banded together to try bridge the shortfall.

Organiser Andrea King said: “We are just trying to raise as much as we can to keep it open."
