Burwood Park's Helping Hands

Burwood Park's Helping Hands
We did it
On 27th November 2018 we successfully raised £10 with 1 supporters in 35 days

We would like to raise enough money to replace our climbing frame, then we hope to continue and update other areas of the park that need it.

In June our parks climbing frame was removed due to old age. We contacted our local council who said it wouldnt be replaced and we should set up a committee and fundraise to replace the frame ourselves. 

So here we are, fundraising like crazy, trying to think up fun and different ideas so people want to help and take part! We have a travelling Gnome who visits and have had a rug sale (carboot on a rug as no car access) at the park! Our children have walked and dropped leaflets, litter picked and helped where needed to contribute. They are a lovely bunch, which keeps us all focused on trying to reach our goal! 

We have a quiz planned, another Bingo and a Ladies night in December! 

Any money raised will be used to replace the climbing frame and update the older sections of the park.

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £55 million for bright ideas and good causes.
