We’re committed to the past, present and future of our green spaces in the Royal Parks. Here’s how you can help our appeals – every donation makes a difference.
History and heritage: Restoring Brompton Cemetery
We're fundraising to restore this beautiful garden cemetery through our Brompton Cemetery Conservation Project. With over 35,000 gravestones and many listed monuments, this green gem is a magnificent tribute to human endeavour and the final resting place of a long list of notable figures.
Our history and heritage appeals honour 500 years of history in the heart of London. From petticoat duels and Tyburn hangings to free speech at Marble Arch. Feuds and unions in peace and wartime, ambassadorial gestures, public celebrations and dissent in St James’s. Abdications, great fires and epidemics. It’s all happened in the Royal Parks.
Wellbeing and learning: Transforming Gloucester Gate playground
Our vision is to transform Gloucester Gate playground into a wonderful new space that encourages imaginative, physical and social play in tune with nature.
Our wellbeing and learning appeals help to keep people playing, relaxing and learning in 5,000 acres of urban wilderness. Children learning to ride their first bicycles. The sunset glow of a loved one’s embrace. Joggers chasing dogs chasing squirrels. Picnics by ponds. Reading a book under a tree. Walking on fresh cut grass. The parks are a place where memories are made in each moment. And where better to gaze at your first dragon fly nymph or help plant a thousand daffodil bulbs. We put education, wellbeing and community at the heart of everything we do.
Nature and conservation: Bring Back the Blossom
Now that 100 new cherry trees have been planted in The Regent's Park through our Bring Back the Blossom appeal, please help us to fund their care over the next decade. You can help us provide a welcome source of nectar for early-pollinators and a beautiful display of colour. You can even sponsor your very own tree!
Our nature and conservation appeals help to protect wildlife, habitats and nature in the city. With more than 135,000 trees, 15 miles of river and 21 lakes and ponds, the Royal Parks are a kaleidoscope of life. Majestic deer herds, cheeky ducks, gregarious pelicans and quiet tawny owls, hedgehogs and stag beetles – all make their home here. From meadowland and shrubberies to reed beds and veteran oaks, we work hard to conserve vital habitats and create precious new ones for the future.
If you too love the Royal Parks, there are many ways we can work together to help support them. Please contact us today to find out how – we would love to hear from you. Phone us on 0300 061 2270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
