Help fund the outdoor play area

Love Play, Love Adventure, Love Nature

We know you love our playground and so do we. We want to create a safe and inviting place for families to relax and kids to enjoy nature. As well as new equipment that encourages explorative play, we want to plant more trees, shrubs and plants to provide more scent, colour and shade and develop an outdoor learning programme for families.

With contributions from Chiswick House Friends and several generous donations from individuals we’ve already raised £35,000 to carry out essential repair work to reopen the playground and install a new sandpit and swing.

We need to raise an additional £100,000 to fund:

  • Outdoor Learning Programme for local school and families
  • Small trees, shrubs & plants for scent, colour and shade
  • Tree Lab to encourage play
  • Sandpit carvings for the kids to sit on & canopy to provide shade
  • Monkey Tree House for climbing

We know how important our outdoor spaces have been over the recent months, providing a sanctuary and lifeline for exercise, fresh air and mental wellbeing. We want to do more but with the cancellation of weddings and events due to Covid, our funds are severely depleted. We’ve had to prioritise our spending on essential maintenance, taking away from us being able to fund other important projects such as this one. We need your help more than ever to make this a reality.
