A place for skateboarding

Robert's dad worked in the park in their town. He looked after the park, and he grew all the flowers there. The flowers looked wonderful every summer, and hundreds of people visited the park to see them.
 
Robert and his friend Paul loved skateboarding around the park. But there was a problem. They had to be careful of the people who were walking on the paths, and when the park was busy, the boys couldn't go skateboarding there because it was too dangerous.
 
Last spring, Robert and his dad were talking. 'We need a special place for skateboarding in the park,' Robert said. Dad agreed, but added 'I'm sorry, Robert, the park hasn't got enough - money for that.' 'We'll get the money!' said Robert.
 
Robert and Paul collected hundreds of old plastic cups from the park's café and grew flowers in them. Robert's dad helped them. Then, every Saturday, they sold them to all the people who came to the park. The boys collected lots of money, but not enough.
 
Then, in July, a journalist wrote a story about Robert and his friend in their town's online newspaper, which she worked for. A very rich businesswoman read the story and thought it was fantastic. She gave the park enough money to build a brilliant place for skateboarding.
