What they do
The Park charity runs a large community centre in Knowle West, Bristol, which allows the local community to enjoy sport, meet with friends and speak to business partners. By creating a space for both recreational and business uses, the charity contributes significantly to the social and economic capital of the region.
What we did
Our funding contributed to the construction of the £7.8m community centre in Knowle West, creating a significant positive impact on the regional community and economy.
“What we really value about City Funds is that they understand what we are trying to do. Sometimes people parachute into our community, but it doesn’t work because they don’t understand what the community wants, and they’re quickly gone again. But City Funds understood that and has stood beside us along the way, making sure that ultimately the project creates something that the community really deserves – a new community asset that everyone can be proud of.”
