Bournemouth Parks Foundation
Bournemouth Parks Foundation (BPF) was the first charity of its kind to be established in the UK and is regarded as a national innovator within the parks sector. It exists to raise funds and awareness to support Bournemouth's parks, gardens and open spaces for now and future generations.
Examples of its work include a campaign to fundraise for a new aviary in Bournemouth Gardens, the installation of a heron camera at Hengistbury Head, and the Parks in Mind project, which provides enjoyable nature conservation and other outdoor activities to benefit the community’s health and wellbeing.
The recent Future Parks Accelerator funding boost will enable the foundation to evolve and grow, potentially across Christchurch and Poole, and/or to expand its fundraising and trading activities.
BPF continue to develop their fundraising strategy and are currently trialling the use of Tap to Give contactless technology at two donation points in Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens (at the aviary and near The Pavilion) and a third located near the Visitor Centre at Hengistbury Head.
