In order to help keep the Royal Parks beautiful and bursting with life every day, we rely on help from businesses like yours. Over the last 3 years amazing corporate volunteers from companies spent a total of 90 days helping out in the parks.
They helped us manage meadows in Kensington Gardens, plant bulbs in The Regent’s Park, clear invasive species in Richmond Park and paint benches in Brompton Cemetary, to name but a few of the activites that were carried out!
Why we need your help
It costs £36m a year to run the eight Royal Parks so that they can remain open for our 77 million annual visitors. As a charity we rely on the valuable time and energy devoted by teams of volunteers to help make improvements to the parks which otherwise could not happen.
Opportunities to help with
We offer a wide range of corporate volunteering activities through our Park Days programme all dependent on what each park needs most.
You could be getting your hands dirty creating planting flowers for early pollinators, having a go at building a bird box, using new tools to manage woodland habitats or helping our team of Shire Horses to keep our meadows beautiful and biodiverse.
We can host groups of between 8 and 40 individuals, for either half a day or a full day and nobody needs prior experience to participate. And with eight royal parks, and a couple of other green spaces, stretching across London there’s likely to be a task for you to help with a stone’s throw from your office.
