Donations & Sponsorship
The Nature Park relies entirely on the local community, local business and grant bodies to raise money not only to purchase the Park in the first place, but also for its continued development and success. So much has been done so far, but we still need further funding to finish the job.
You've been generous so far.
Little Chalfont Charitable Trust is extremely grateful for everything we have already received. Almost every penny that has been spent has been raised by donations from the public, grant bodies and local businesses. In the first appeal, we raised an incredible £178,000 from 231 individual donations (including Gift Aid where available), to buy the land.
Since then, we have raised a further £98,000 from a combination of Local Authority grants, Forestry Commission, Paradigm, Aviva, Weston Foundation, D'Oyly Carte and other private/individual donations.
But we need more.
There are still some key features we need to add to the Park to make it complete. Please take a few minutes to check out our sponsorship opportunities.
Our top priority is to raise the extra £50,000 we need to lay the hard paths, so the Park will be fully accessible to wheelchair and mobility scooter users, and the children's play area.
There are still a number of features which we wish to include in the Park, but need funds to do so. You can sponsor a single feature, or just contribute whatever you can afford. Please see the list of items; prices include a small plaque of recognition.
If you wish to sponsor all or part of an item, please download, print and complete a sponsorship form and send it to the address on the form, or email Mandy Rooke at naturepark for further information.
List of Sponsorship Items
Items marked * are already installed or ordered, but sponsorship is welcome to supplement grants already received.
The Park needs a hard path so that it may be used in all weathers, in all seasons by all members of the community, including users of wheelchairs and strollers.
We reluctantly decided to open the Park without full paved access, but providing it is still important to us. The path is the biggest single cost and our most vital asset.
This is a massive cost for us, so anything will be of help.
Cost: £240 pays for a section of path.
