UK-based group Long Live Southbank has announced that Supreme has donated approximately $66,000 to its cause. Long Live Southbank is campaigning to preserve an iconic London skate spot on the south side of the River Thames. In 2003, the Southbank Centre closed off parts of the skate spot and announced that the area would be redeveloped, prompting a grassroots campaign to keep the park open.
The Southbank skate spot was saved from closing outright in 2014, but Long Live Southbank is working to protect the space from further development. According to the group’s site, any donations received will fund the organization’s restoration project, which primarily oversees the reopening of skating sections within Southbank’s Undercroft.
We'd like to say a massive thanks to Supreme for their generous donation to the campaign. Over the last 5 years they have been key supporters of LLSB and we are super grateful! 🙌 It's rad to see the whole skate community coming together to open up one of London's most loved spots – Big ups! @supremenewyork @mrjagger_ #unlocktheundercroft #supreme #llsb
