iowskaters.com would not exist without Ryde Arena. Please read this:
Ryde Arena has launched an Indiegogo campaign to try to raise funds towards the repair of the building’s roof.
As users of the rink are all too aware, the fabric of the building deteriorated under Planet Ice’s stewardship and essential repairs are now required. The roof is a key part of these, and Ryde Arena Trust’s campaign is after £40,000 towards a new waterproof membrane to make the whole structure watertight. As users of Ryde Arena are well aware from the carefully placed buckets, the roof leaks when it rains and has done so for years.
iowskaters realizes that fundraising campaigns often fall on deaf ears. But if everyone who visited iowskaters.com over a year donated just £1 then the campaign would almost reach its target. If you’ve used and benefited from iowskaters.com, or supported the campaign to save the rink from the cold, dead hands of Planet Ice, then please support our rink – without the rink and its skaters, there is no reason for this website to exist.
