We’re delighted to announce that we are now friends of Fields in Trust (FIT) who are the only national charity securing and improving outdoor recreational spaces to ensure that they will always be there and that everyone will always have access to them.
They have a strong heritage and were founded in 1925 by King George V to ensure that there was always somewhere to play. Here are some more interesting facts:
- FIT was chosen as the Duke of Edinburgh’s first charity Presidency;
- Her Majesty The Queen has been our Patron for over 64 years;
- The Duke of Cambridge took over from his Grandfather as our President in 2013 following his Patronage of the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge.
All of which are fantastic credentials as we’re sure you’ll agree!
We are not only helping to contribute to communities across the UK by assisting to secure more green outdoor space but we can also help to tackle obesity by helping people to become fit and active, encourage community activity and cohesion and maintain biodiversity by reducing the ‘nature deficit’ in children and families.
Fields in Trust currently protects almost 3,000 playgrounds, sports pitches, nature reserves, woodlands and bike trails, in addition to providing access to funds and improvement grants.
