Our main fundraising activities over the next few years are focussed on the purchase of new electrical mobility scooters for the Park. These scooters are free to use and enable many people with restricted mobility to enjoy the full beauty of the Park. They are well used and greatly appreciated.
The Park currently has four of these machines but they are now coming to the end of their life. The Friends are hoping to raise sufficient funds to replace them over the next three years. They cost approximately £7,500 each and as well as donations we are looking to raise funds from charitable groups and events we can organise. We have named the fund the Walker Fund as a thank you to a lady who has made a substantial donation in memory of her husband.
GREAT NEWS….We have raised the funding to purchase two new scooters…let’s aim for four! A huge thank you to our donors.
