We receive a modest grant and other support from Shenstone Parish Council. However, in order to fully maintain and develop the recreation ground, we have to raise money from other sources through our own fundraising efforts. The main ones are as follows:-
We have three donation boxes at the recreation ground and we ask visitors to consider donating a small sum to help us maintain the recreation ground and towards the cost of purchasing new equipment.
As a registered charity and if you are a tax payer then it is possible to gift aid your donations enabling us to claim extra money under the government approved gift aid scheme.
If you would like to make a donation to the recreation ground you can do so through 'Just Giving' via this link. DONATE
We have one large event each year called Party in the Park and this is our major fundraiser. From the funds raised at this event we maintain the grounds, pathways and equipment. We also purchase new items of equipment from these funds.
We are very dependent on various grant funding agencies to enable us to develop special projects at the recreation ground. In recent years we were fortunate enough to receive a grant from the Cory Environmental Trust (now known as Enovert Community Trust) to establish a wildlife educational area. More recently we have received a grant to assist in the purchase and installation of a community defibrillator from the M6 Toll Company.
