Friends of Parkinson’s Park have been successful in being accepted onto the Localgiving CV Matchfunding Scheme.

The objective is to support people in communities to connect with each other and work together to enhance wellbeing. We are thus raising funds for activities and features in the Park that different people can work on that will benefit the local community eg we are planning to dress different areas of the Park for Christmas for local families to visit in their own time. We also want to do more work to develop the Willow Walk as a fun area for childrens play

The scheme will run over two weeks from 27th October to 9th November – or until funds run out..


Localgiving will match any donations made via localgivng page between 10am Tuesday 27th October, and 9.59am Tuesday 3rd November up to a donation value of £75. Only one donation per person is allowed.

Example: If you make a donation of £20 the Park will get £40 less a handling fee. We will get a little extra if you gift aid the donation.


The following week, 3rd- 9th November the donations made that will be matched rise to a £5,000 limit.
