The Ropetackle Arts Centre has become one of the region’s most successful venues and community facility attracting more than 50,000 visitors a year.  A registered charity, run by a tiny team plus the hard work of many volunteers.  Supported by a range of sponsoring business, Friends and Sponsors but the centre is in crisis without more support. As is common with most arts venues, Ropetackle cannot survive without subsidy and support.

Ropetackle 2020 is the fundraising appeal to the community.  The aim is to raise £30,000 from the community which will enable them to apply for a further £20,000 in match-funding.

Three weeks into the campaign, they have reached over a third of the target.  The response by the community has been incredibly heartwarming with hundreds signing up already to become Patrons or Friends.  Can you help them progress the fundraising?

If just 4% of annual visitors committed to a £2 per month direct debit, Ropetackle will achieve target.
