Thanks to many generous donors, we are well on our way to raising the funds needed to install a colourful play train unit in the park’s toddler play area.
And we’ve just heard the great news that our project has been chosen for a cash award from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative which offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of the revenue generated from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores. We are one of three groups shortlisted for our local area and could receive £1,000, £2,000 or £4,000 depending on how many people vote for us during March and April this year.
You can help us scoop the top award – and hit our target for the train! Just ask for your token at the checkout and drop it in the voting box each time you shop at the Tesco Superstore in Huddersfield or Express stores in Marsh or Halifax Road.
Our crowd funding page is now closed, but if you would like to contribute to the train fund, you can still donate by sending a cheque made out to Friends of Greenhead Park to FoGP, c/o Refreshment Rooms, Greenhead Park, Huddersfield HD1 4HS. You can also call in with a donation to our drop-in session in the pavilion by the bowling greens on a Wednesday afternoon between 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
