WE DID IT!

MAYFLOWER 400: GET ACTIVE CROWDFUNDER WAS A SUCCESS!

On 8th April 2020 we successfully raised £41,372 with 82 supporters in 42 days. We were delighted to hit our target - a massive thank you to everyone who pledged towards this programme.


This generosity from the community, local clubs, organisations and businesses will enable us to co-ordinate and stimulate a programme of sport, health and well-being for the city. While utilising the power of Plymouth's history to create lasting sporting change, engaging over 20,000 people in this innovative activity programme. This is an exciting year for the city of Plymouth as it commemorates the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower.


The Mayflower 400: Get Active programme seeks to provide a wide range of opportunities for the communities of Plymouth. The money raised in this Crowdfunder will allow us to continue developing an active, inspirational and inclusive community, supporting people of all ages to achieve their full potential.


Amongst many benefits of this Crowdfunder appeal, a key reason was that we would be able to provide the vast majority of the programme activities for free!


This will be achieved through one-off promotional events, free taster sessions and community engagement programmes, more specifically some of the activities will include: Get Active Piazza Events, Sporting Voyage, Sailors of Tomorrow, Takeover Events, Community Games and many more.


Thank you to all of the volunteers, staff, organisations and businesses that have worked with us so far on this exciting programme, your efforts and enthusiasm are hugely appreciated!

Fantastic idea hopefully this will help more people of all ages to get more active.
Bidfood were delighted to be involved in the Mayflower 400 Takeover Event that saw 2020 young people attend Argyle to watch a game as part of the Commemorations. To be involved as a major supporter for the Get Active campaign is a great opportunity for people to get involved in sport. Hopefully the programme can restart before the end of the year and give people something to look forward too.
I wish Argyle Community Trust every success in raising this money for such a great programme, keep up the good work!
Four Greens is delighted to support one of our key partners that deliver amazing Wellbeing opportunities for the people of North Plymouth. This is an exciting project that will truly make a difference and we look forward to be able to be part of it through the Mayflower 400 Community Games Initiative that will be taking place this Summer at Ernesettle, Whitleigh and Honicknowle.
Argyle Community Trust are one of the best teams I've had the pleasure to work with, thanks for all the hard work, this will be brilliant!
After reading the testimonies, how can you not support! I am aware of the dedication that is put in by all of you and its very much appreciated within the community. Good luck from Ocean BMW and Ocean MINI.
