Stop Press as of 24.04.15. Dan’s had to pull out of the London Marathon this year due to a knee injury. He’s trying to negotiate a place in next year’s Marathon, which is usually allowed in circumstances of injury. We are contacting all existing donors as soon as possible to offer them a refund if they’d like, or to ask if they’d like to donate anyway, or hold over the donation to the following year. If you haven’t heard from us, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you. We’re all just so sorry for Dan who’s been training so hard for months!
Friends of Chestnuts Park member and landscape gardener Dan Shea is running the London Marathon in May for Friends of Chestnuts Park to raise money for a new Friends Willow Garden, orchard and wildlife area. See below for pics of the Willow Tree at present and an early design for the new Friends Willow Garden
Any donation large or small will really help improve the park and take us a big step closer to achieving a community wildlife garden area around the Willow Tree. This will involve and benefit all ages and provide the park with an abundance of flowers and biodiversity. See below for pics of Dan at work, including two of the flagpole bed in Chestnuts Park. Haringey Council has offered to match whatever he raises, so this doubles the amount you donate. To sponsor Dan please click on the Donate button and send us a message.
