Theydon Bois run down community playground in need of love
The playground is a main hub in our community – it not only benefits 2-11yr olds but their carers, parents and family members that visit with them, providing a place to meet others, make friends, and build relationships. OneFamily support would enable the playground at Theydon association to purchase much needed, more inclusive equipment.
- The community award will enable our charity to provide not only a playground in an ever diminishing facility but also a more inclusive one with equipment that provides more play and social opportunities for disadvantaged and less abled children.
- To reinstate the facilities available to the 2-11yr olds and their carers in the community. Currently there are 4 large pieces of equipment left in what was once an award winning facility. These remaining pieces are rotting and in need of constant repair
- Restoring the area to its former glory of an award winning facility, one the community can be proud of. Not letting the space be put at risk of redevelopment for housing or similar projects.
How we will achieve our goals
Without this award we would not be able to purchase the much needed equipment to create a play haven for the ever growing population of young families in Theydon Bois. The existing facility, what’s left of it, has little shelf life left. When this has perished there’ll be no go-to place for young families within 3.5miles -accessible only by car.
Where the money will go
Together we will provide a safe secure play haven for young children from all walks of life providing them with opportunities to improve their health , well being and spiritual being in a social, interactive and exciting space where the equipment will stimulate imagination and physicality. Where families can share precious moments together.
