Pathways 2 Play Appeal

The Pathways 2 Play Appeal aims to raise £100,000 towards a range of inclusive and sensory playground equipment for the Tim Lamb Centre garden.   The project will also incorporate over 100m of accessible pathway, which will connect to both the existing and new equipment.  We also plan to improve the playground surface area underneath the existing swings and around the existing pirate ship, this should hopefully overcome the problems associated with water-logging in these areas.

Fence moved back 2 meters
Space where animal corner has been removed

Creating a little more space in our garden area was our first aim.  To achieve this the border fence behind the swings has been moved back by 2m, the full length of the garden.  The old animal enclosure has now been removed too.  Improved ramp access is also planned for early in the new year.

This preliminary work is in preparation for our new playground equipment and has been funded from money raised at the 2019 Pathways Ball.

The funding for these two swing seats was achieved, thanks to the generosity of our Facebook supporters.  A total of £1100 was collectively donated to our Christmas Fundraising Appeal 2019.

A big THANK YOU to each and every person who donated.  These seats have now been installed in our park.

Our new Cruise Line has been purchased following receipt of a generous £16,000 Sun 50 Fund.  We are very grateful to The Sun for this huge boost to our garden fundraising appeal and to the kind supporters who nominated us for this grant.

The Cruise Line has been shipped in from America and will be installed into our playground in January 2021.

Our new wheelchair accessible swing will replace the existing blue one.  The newer model will include a radar key operated enclosure and offers increased safety features.  We are very grateful to the Morrisons Foundation for a £14,500 grant which will pay for the purchase and instalment of the item.  The new swing will be located in line with the existing swings offering a much more socially inclusive experience.
