2023 summer grants for children's outdoor activities awarded

News item first posted on: 29/06/23

We are delighted to be partnering once again with The Hilden Charitable Fund to enable more children to get outdoors and enjoy nature together. 
In 2022, this collaboration enabled us to support 25 groups with grants of £1,500 each through our Children’s Summer Activity Grant. The activities exceeded our expectations, providing around 314 sessions over the summer to more than 3,000 participants of children and their families. The types of activities varied widely, from drop-in craft and wildlife sessions and family activity days to intensive 6-week programmes for specific young people who would not have otherwise been able to attend.
