Dig deep to help park build on its success
Park seeks donations
A popular park is appealing for funding to continue holding events.
Castlemilk Park has held over 800 events over the past several years, from pumpkin festivals at Halloween to woodland walks and photo walking groups.
Their most recent event was a successful doggie day.
Now park bosses are hoping to use the My Park website to encourage residents to donate cash that will be used in the upkeep of the park and to keep running different events.
A park spokesperson said: “We want to build on the success of the past five years.
“Our events will help with peoples physical and mental health, the events will also help with habitat improvement of the Castlemilk Park woods through volunteer sessions as well as helping to share and educate people via guided walks and our history walks.
“Over the past five years we have proven that there is a need to help people engage with their local woodland/ greenspace, to become involved in the management and to increase people awareness of what is on their own doorstep.
“Comments on our Facebook page have highlighted how much the events mean to local residents who may struggle to attend events like this elsewhere.
“People now have a real sense of ownership and pride in the woodlands and the events and activities that take place.
“They are keen to see them continue as it helps to change people perceptions on the place and provides opportunities that people maybe would not have otherwise.
“So please support us to deliver events and activities for the local and wider community.”
Donation amounts can be made through the website or by texting TEXT FOCP49 and including the amount that you wish to donate to 70070.
Donation amounts can be £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10.
