Manchester has been trying to gain a vert ramp for many years now, and with the upcoming construction of “Beast Rampz Skatepark” in Ardwick this month, Reiss Johnson has set up a Go Fund Me page to help raise the £3000 needed to cover the cost of the build.
“After getting in touch with Tim – the owner of the soon to be skatepark, he informed me a vert ramp could be a possibility. After looking at the building we decided that a vert ramp could fit in however would be very expensive. We costed out the ramp and came to a figure of £6000 to cover materials. A private investor has already covered 50% of the cost and so we need around £3000 for the rest. We are currently in talks with possible sponsors meaning that this number could be even lower soon!”
