Parks Alive is keen to enhance the parks and green spaces around Redcar and Cleveland by providing additional facilities and events throughout the year.

The Redcar & Cleveland Parks Foundation is able to access greater funding streams than those available in a council-controlled structure, such as grants and lottery funding, as well as community fundraising events and charity donations.

We are a not-for-profit organisation, so money donated to the Foundation will be ploughed back for the good of our eight parks and green spaces to make them even better than they are now.

Local communities, businesses and individuals can help us to raise funds for the parks. There are countless ideas, from sponsored walks, teddy bears’ picnics, fun runs, cake sales, and raffles, to name a few.

If you have your own fundraising or volunteering idea, we’d love to hear it!
