greenspace scotland has announced the launch of Parks4Life: Scotland’s first ever fund for parks and greenspaces.
The launch of Parks4Life goal is to raise one million pounds by the end of 2023 to help support Scotland’s parks with a sustainable fund for the future.
To celebrate the launch of the Parks4Life fund, the greenspace charity is launching Park Portraits, a digital photo gallery bringing to life the stories of a dozen Scottish people and the ways that parks have enriched their lives. From Aberdeen to Cumbernauld, Leith to Dumbarton, and across to the Hebrides, greenspace scotland has worked with talented Scottish photographer David Anderson to capture soulful portraits of people who exemplify the value that parks provide.
The funds raised through Parks4Life will be invested to provide an endowment to provide an ongoing source of funds for parks. The endowment will be used by communities across Scotland to support local park improvements, activities and events; making sure local parks from large cities to small towns are nurtured and cherished for the future.
